Would you choose a JTM45 or the 1959 for AC/DC?
With that in mind, would you choose a JTM45 or the 1959? Why? The JTM45 is a bit of a weird amp-it’s partly in the Fender camp (often KT66 output tubes, more Fender like tone stack) and partly in the Marshall. For AC/DC I think I’d go with the more developed Marshall tone of the 1959 myself.
Should I get a 1959 or a 45 or a 1987?
JTM 45 is great as a pedal platform or for those woman bluesbreaker tones, but the 1959 will do a much better job of getting you into the AC/DC territory. A 1987 will really give you the AC/DC vibe and you can throw pedals at it to do whatever else you’d want. Plus, there’s a fair amount of clean headroom as well, if you need it for that.
What’s the difference between the 1959HW and the 1959p ri?

I have a LAR-MAR ppimv in both my original 71 SL and my JTM45 (w/KT66s) RI and they sound great at reasonable levels but nothing can compare to Full on tilt boogie!
