Look into www.olcircuits.com . They have a distortion pedal based off 'The Orange Sound.' You'll never get it exact without actually having tubes though.

Based on their recommendation, I bought...

I've done it a few times, including once on a Les Paul Studio Faded. Whether the guitar is acoustic or electric doesn't much matter; how you play it does. If you slam the crap out of your guitar,...

If you can find one, I strongly recommend the Mesa Boogie 22 Cal. It's just like the 50 Cal, which is basically a recto without the tube rectifier, but lower wattage.

Also worth looking into is a...

But to play the devil's advocate, the talk box (if used well) can make you more unique.

I'd say screw 'em both and go with an EH HOG. But that's just because I'm ******ed for them right now.
