My buddy has a Rolland JC twin. Sounds better with his acoustic guitar then his electric. I like the aluminum domed speakers which get tones similar to my vintage Altecs. I could get by using it if I had to but I'd take the Fender any day.

So much depends on what you are expecting from an amp, style of music you play, the kind of guitar you favor, the pedals you use...

The JC is a great jazz amp, as it adds zero color [absent the digital chorus fx] to your sound, and has clean headroom 'to infinity and beyond'. If you are playing a large body jazz guitar, few mass produced amps are better over all. I even know a few keyboard players who like these as kb amps...but they are bulky and take a lot of stage floor space, like a Twin Reverb does. It is a great pedal platform because it will give you back what you put in.

The Deluxe is a little beast, offering nearly all the benefits of a Twin Reverb in half the space, with clean tube head room up to ~8, at which point it turns itself slowly into a snarling amp at a volume most clubs frown upon. Also a great pedal platform for pedals, it loves solid body guitars, somehow wringing the warmth and clarity out of a tele, strat or les paul like most other amps can't.
