Blues Deluxe might be just the ticket, if you are getting a good price.
Been playing one at rehearsals, and while they are geared towards an overdriven blues-rock sound (a la SRV, EC Duane, etc), they also clean up shiny and sparkly, and feature a decent spring reverb. I can't actually tell that much difference from the Hot Rod models.
