07 Fender American Deluxe Strat
07 Fender Custom Telecaster

10 Jet City JCA-20
97 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

That will work fine. As long as the cabinet ohms do not drop below the amp's minimum impedance rating, you are OK. With the 16-ohm cabinet, you just won't get the full power of the amp.
