You'd need to mic the Class 5.

Look at the Haze 40 combo, that amps sounds dark stock. But with a nice speaker swap it'll be good for the genres you listed because it's built to sound like an amp from those era's.
Gear:
-2008 Gibson Les Paul Studio Cherry Sunburst w/ Alnico Pro II
-Marshall JCM2000 DSL 401
-Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
-Blackstar HT-1 mini stack
