Which one of these two amps are better?
also, how come they're both the same price but the crate has +20W?
and will i be able to get a john mayer-ish sounding blues through any of these amps?

The V50 is from the new series (both by Crate) but is cheaper presumably because of the common 6L6 output section. Although I'd usually say it's over-wattaged for most people's needs, it's gonna have more headroom and sound more John-Mayerish because of the 6L6s, so I'd say the V50.
