Default SE sound vs Ultra Linear sound

What is the difference in sound between a single ended design and an ultra-linear P-P design? Let's say we are in the 15 watt ballpark for an acoustic instrument amp, so the goal is good fidelity across 40hz to 20 khz, instead of the usual electric guitar sound which is mid heavy and distorted.

single ended tends to promote even harmonics(the pleasant kind) and inhibit odd harmonics(the nasty kind). An ultra linear amp would have neither.

in a guitar rig a single ended amp could really give you some nice tone.

p-p is suited well to hifi
