The majority of features you describe as making the Fender "bare bones" actually save very little in production costs.

How about converting that 4x10 into a head and cab, if that's something you're comfortable with? 10" speakers aren't typically favoured for that kind of music, blue marvels aren't great and that...

That's rather obvious. Also, telling someone not to replace power amp valves until they're completely dead is stupid. You wouldn't wait until your car's running on it's rims before putting new boots...

3 nice guitars, no good amp.

No question. Just go out, play a load of amps, AC15s are a good starting point, but you might fall in love with something else.

I'd shoot for a used Laney VC15/30 or Cub, maybe a Vox Night Train or AC4. If SRV-esque sounds are more important, maybe look for a second hand Fender Blues Junior.
