Hi, sorry for my late reply. The Fender BJ has a typical Fender tone. Lots of headroom, mild mids scoop and a fairly bright tone. The Laney has more mids, a darker tone and less headroom, although it plays fairly clean on lower gain settings. The tone is closer to a Marshall/Hiwatt. So, it’s really two different sounding amps. For Gilmour’s tones, you could go either way, but I would perhaps recommend the Laney. It’s more versatile I think and it also works nicely with most pedals. None of these really need biasing but get matched pairs. Good luck with the project!
