    My sett-up would be
    Norma Electric -> FZ-7 ->Russian Big Muff -> Boss GT-6 -> Amp (Jazz Chorus?)

    J used a Marshall, but I cann’t really afford one. Also I don’t just play Dinosaur Jr and the Marshall would suck for some of the opther music I play.

    I was also thinking of one of those new Epiphone tube amps. Which would be better?

    Are any amps under 300 dollars that would be better. (I am 15 and don’t have a job)

    hm, man i know j sounds very good, find your "own sound." i might sound a tad snobish for that, but i mean playing covers is fine, but you should just spring off the branch, and by a total acident i have 80% of the early j tone, except for a jazzy which is sadly also my favorite guitar, so im not sure how much of an oxymoron it sounds like me saying find your own sound, but anyway to your question yes it sound like the clean j sound. also te $99 epi-valve jr. its very nice, not too loud, and it sounds rather nice form what i’ve heard.

    I don’t know how it’d do for a J sound, but Jazz Chorus amps are renowned for their good clean tones, portability, consistency, and the ability to cut through the mix. If you have one, hang on to it, and if you can pick one up, at least give it a test drive and see what you think.
