A huge Marshall stack
Here’s what I’d look at:
1. Fender Princeton Reverb Reissue
2. Vox AC10
3. Vox AC30
I was recently in Maine and found a blackface 1965 Super Reverb for less than $2K. On wheels. I flew unfortunately and was with my wife so I couldn't sneak out of there with it. The vacation was damn expensive too. I would try a Princeton Reverb or a Deluxe. Maybe one of the new Tonemaster Deluxes. The new Vibrolux reissue looked pretty nice, they had one of those as well and the Vibro Champ looks awesome, for $750 bucks I don't know if its worth it but I didn't get a chance to try it out.
See I can relate .. but .. I'm the fella who'll bunk off work and fly drive without a change of clothes if the price is right.
1. Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue
2. Vintage Fender Vibrolux Reverb
3. Vintage Fender Princeton

Why just ONE ? buy several
I played a bunch of bar gigs on a Hot Rod Deluxe with a bunch of different guitars and a bunch of different pedals over a bunch of years. Always sounded decent, a great amp at an affordable price, and actually sounded better over the years. It's almost 20 years old now.
There have been a huge number of suggestions in this thread (and the other threads on this and other forums). The best advice I can give you is to pick one in your budget range. Play it, see what it can do. Live with it a while. If it doesn't work for you, move on to the next one.
You might find that one amp will do everything you want, and you might find that you like different ones for different things.
But you'll never know until you get started.
This thread could hit 50 pages and still not cover every option.
Ya, I play piano in a jazz trio, but started getting back to guitar during quarantine.
My recently acquired Vox AC15 blew me out of the water. Just ... wow!
Those clinking spoons in mugs can be pretty loud..lol..
Getting a HR Deluxe to sound good at home without shaking the entire house and annoying everyone on the block *might* be challenging I thought the volume levels were "too quiet, a bit better, and okay, sounds great, but I can't hear myself think" which is reached around volume level.. what, 2 1/2?
I just got a Katana MkII 50 and I lurve it.
It's the Leatherman of amps.
I just bought one of these recently, and I think it sounds pretty good for a small portable amp. It would come in handy.
The one you think sounds best to you that you can afford to buy and will keep forever, regardless of how heavy or small or awkward or ugly it is.
Just remember, it doesn't stop at just one amp.
You ought to see the thread at MyLesPaul...
I didn't even realize he posted the same thing at both forums, changing only the type of guitar.
