My friend's dad has a Yamaha JX30 from 1983 and I absolutely love it. I looked around (on the internet of course) and absolutely couldn't find anything except for a JX65 on eBay which I was outbid on. So I was wondering if anyone knows of a good vintage-sounding amp with basic settings (volume, equilization, maybe reverb, but that's it) for a generally low price, maybe 200-300 dollars? thanks

Umh... Why does it need to be vintage?
That puts you in the price range for a vintage solidstates, which are regarded as quite bad.
Just go for a modern used tube combo.

Most of the 5 or 15 watt tube combos are vintage voiced. Try some of those out like the Epiphone Valve Junior, Blackheart Little Giant, Crate Palomino, Peavey Royal 8 and Peavey Classic 30. All those should be vintage sounding and in your price range, even the Classic if you look used.

I second this statement.
Basically, most if not all tube amps which aren't geared specifically for metal are "vintage" sounding.
