Alright, so im really loking into getting some sort of marshall jtm45 copy. I've already looked at the Metropoulos and Ceriatone.

Any opinions on these, or other suggestions. I would really want to keep the price tag under a grand.
Gear:

MIA Fender Stratocaster
Jackson Kelly KE3
Ibanez Universe
Marshall JCM 800
Orange Jim Root Terror
Mesa 2x12
Ovation Custom Balladeer
pedals and such in profile

I have a Metropolous, its a great amp, but you won't find one for under a grand unless you're buying used.

Other than those two, Germino also makes a decent JTM45, but Metropoulos is probably the best out there.

really? I've gotten rave reviews from just about everyone who has a Ceriatone.
