Well, if he lives in PA I'm pretty sure he's going to be using American currency. It wouldn't make sense to be using Euros or whatever if he's in America.

Peavey ValveKing. It's a good entry-level tube amp. Definitely check it out at a music store near you.

Look used, too. There are a lot of good amps out there that are expensive, but you can get cheaper used. It might have a few scratches, but it's an amp. The amp doesn't need to look beautiful, it needs to sound beautiful.

Marshall is another good company to look at. I don't think there's too much from Marshall worth looking at with 600. There is the MG series, but stay away from them. I haven't found a single serious guitar player with too many good things to say about it. Especially with a price tag of over 200.

Crate and Randall are also some good companies to take a look at. What you'll get from them is mostly solid-state stuff, which doesn't sound as good as a tube amp, but it will get the job done.

If you want good cleans, get a Fender, and a distortion pedal. I've got a Blues Jr. and with a distortion I can play anything. Only take that road if you use cleans a lot. If you get a crappy amp, you probably won't use the cleans because they suck.

EDIT: I'm not saying that all solid-states sound bad. There are some good solid-states out there. But it's just that tubes are generally better. And louder. My 15W Fender with tubes is a lot louder than any 15W solid-state I've ever seen.
