Crate (ugh, I know, but listen..) made this line of amps a number of years back called the Vintage Club. I had a 20 watt combo from the line and used it as a head through a 4x12" with Celestion G12H30's. I called it my JCM 20. Hehe. Tone was in the vein of a JCM 800, but was a tad on the thin side, which is why I bit the bullet and actually bought an 800. But for 200 bucks on eBay - totally worth it. Great tone out of that thing.

So yes, that's the long-winded way of saying bypassing a combo's speaker totally works. Just make sure you're matching proper impedence.
