If the speakers are crappy and are coloring your tone ina way you don't like, that particular situation is not going to change if you use an outboard preamp!
In general, I would say that blackface Fenders, fitted with good-sounding speakers, sound anything but "nasty" with humbucker-equipped guitars at low to medium volumes. If anything, that Fendery scooped midrange and thin brightness often can sweeten up the sound of, say, a Les Paul or 335.
My suggestion is to see if the "nastiness" disappears when you plug into an external speaker cabinet containing know good-quality speakers. Also, try substituting some preamp tubes -- some NOS tubes, as expensive as they are, can be real dogs, right out of the box.
