Does anyone know what amp will give me a good Chuck Berry tone for under $1000? I don't exclusivly play his music, but i love his guitar tone. All help is greatly appreciated.

Note: Don't know if it will give me a good reproduction (haven't got a chance to play on one yet) but i am leaning heavily towards a blues deluxe reissue, does anyone know if this amp would be well suited to that style?

Sounds like about the right amp...back in the days the tweed Fender was king. An overdrive pedal might help a bit too.
I'm not very active here on UG currently.

yeah. you basically want something with a pretty good clean channel that'll overdrive when you start to turn it up.

You might want to look at some traynors too (ycv40/50). I haven't tried them, but they might get a similar tone for a bit cheaper. They're canadian.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

i think i saw chuck berry playing through an old marshall plexi with his semi hollow of course i think thats the key to his sound, so maybe an old jcm 800 combo, and a semi hollow of sorts
