SWR LA15 or Ibanez SW65...?

    Just getting back into playing after a 20 year hiatus (hope the fingers still work). Looking at both the SWR LA15 and the Ibanez SW65 for my only amp. I'll mostly be using the amp for practice at home with a distant dream of playing out again at some point. Play an Ibanez SR500 - rock, blues and a little funk...

    Any comments/thoughts that might sway me one way or the other?

    Thanks in advance!

    SWR LA-15. But have it modified so it doesn't pop when you turn it on and off. I have the LA-12 model and that's the only thing I don't like about it. On second thought, I have the original model and the newer ones may have that fixed. Anyway, check it out before you buy it.
