I will reiterate the Vox MV50 series and the bc108 cab. 9 lbs combined and will easily keep up with a Blues Jr in volume and tone department. Smallest, great sounding rig I have played through. If the AC is too dark, the boutique (sounds like a Dumble) or the clean may be your taste.

I'll profess a preference for blackface clean tones. The Princeton Reverb Reissue weighs 34 lbs, and with the right ceramic speaker can be plenty loud to gig in many situations. Also available with 12 a inch speaker in special edition models. The Deluxe Reverb is a terrific amp. Slightly bigger cab, 7 more lbs and 7 more watts but an absolutely heavenly tone. I own both of these amps and started with a Blues Junior, but haven't touched it since tasting the DRRI. Save a little more and shop used as others have suggested. You won't regret the extra $$$ once you play one.

The katana amp has a bit of a learning curve. If you have the patience to try some low tech settings with your Telecaster, you might be pleasantly surprised. I hated mine at first, but found many very exciting sounds.
I got a new American telecaster last year to replace my aging 1988 one. The new one was quite an upgrade from the one I've played for 30 years, in just about every way. Best results for me are a Carr Skylark, or my old 1965 Fender b/f deluxe reverb. Just jive perfectly with a Telecaster.
Good luck.
