    You might find a Musicman combo in the 300.00 range. Similar to blackface/siverface sound and built like tanks. A few even have a built in phase shifter.

    If you're playing at home, then either the Mustang... Or a Silverface Champ or Vibro Champ. Throw a reverb pedal and a phaser in front of it and you're in the ballpark for home volume.

    I really think the amp having big transformers and multiple speakers (preferably JBL) is a big part of Waylon's tone, so the big amp recommendations are right. However, big amps just don't sound like big amps unless you can get the volume up a little. Waylon could get his amp's volume up as loud as he wanted, but if you push a Twin much above 4 at home, then hope your neighbors are Waylon fans.

    With a good phaser pedal you can get a Waylon tone pretty easy, you can spend less than $300- for a good amp, a good used Peavey Bandit can be bought for $100- to $150- and it will do,watch Craigslist everyday to find a good buy. J.Rodney

    The Stealth will nail all that ****, just needs some good mods and slap Marshall iron on it haha, I feel like a badboy/outlaw haha, I'm just more of a blues/rocker/metal guy though but I know very well the sound you are talking about haha. Like Super Hot-rodded Country etc haha,
