well,the 5C1 has a 6SJ7 preamp tube which is grid-leak biased.That alone is a different sound than a 5F1 which uses a 12AX7 which is cathode biased.Then the voltages are lower which means lower power output.It would probably be a grindy little quiet amp.
Might be good for harp,but not really the best sound for guitar compared to a 5F1 in my opinion.
