So I've decided to buy an Epiphone Blues Custom 30 (2x12").
Seeing as I might need a little extra punch for playing hard rock/soft metal/lead tones, and because it's cheaper and more fun, I've decided to spring for a GGG DIY pedal (link).
Which one can bring me these tones?
I'm currently looking at the ITS8 (Tubescreamer Clone, with mods!) and the MGV (Marshall Guv'nor/Danelectro Daddy-o Clone)
