Like tubetime suggested, an old JCM800 is probably your best bet short of finding an actual Plexi. Either way though, prepare to fork out a good amount of cash.

Can't speak for that particular guitar, but I own a 1982 Greco SG, and quite honestly, I would choose that guitar over any Gibson SG I've played over the years. My only "complaint" about my Greco...

You get a lot of bang for not a whole lot of buck with Agile guitars. Personally I would go with the Agile. I've always loved Agile guitars and after almost a decade, my Agile still ranks as one of...

If the tremolo is a string-thru (like on standard Fender trem), it doesn't matter what you do. It'll never stay in tune. Those were common on low price guitars of that era. They gave you a locking...

I like the simplicity of a 1 pickup guitar. Granted, it wouldn't cover all my needs, but honestly, I'd say at least 80% of the time I'm on the bridge humbucker on my guitars anyway.

Sounds like it's possible a really, really bad intonation problem. Get the guitar setup and see if it fixes the problem. My guess is that it will.
