Remember Paul Weller used some Rics that were heavily modified. One of his main ones in the early years had a Gibson style bridge. Others had PAF hum buckers installed. And he didn't always just use Vox AC30's. He also used Roland JC120's and some Peavy amps as well.

Having a Rick 330 and a Vox AC30 is a good place to start.

Thank you all.
Eventually, I am playing my Rickenbacker 330 through a Vox AC30 (Greenback Celestion 12") and it's a great sound!!!

I play my Ricks thru Vox amps. I have one old 1965 AC30T (treable) with silver bells. One chinese AC30 Brian May - wich is a standard AC30 from the beginning but with the other two channels removed. I use it without the added treblebooster. It sounds nearly spot on to my old one. Just a slightly more high-end on the older, but not much.

If I want less volume I can turn the BM into 15w, a good feautre. But it´s till loud. So I modded my Fender Pro JR and made the negative feedback mod, swapped the speaker to a Jensen Alnico. It sounds "right" and is not as loud. I can also get nice amp-crunch from it with the volume at noon.
