    Not the "Champ 600" from a couple years ago. It had a totally different tone circuit (BF tone stack with fixed settings), negative feedback values, and a solid-state rectifier. Looked the part, though.

    I have a Goodsell Champton which is basically a twee Princeton in a champ,sized cab with a tone knob. It also has more clean headroom than a champ. Goodsell is out of business but I saw one on reverb for around $600 a while back.

    Epiphone Valve Junior will sound pretty similar.

    OP wants an amp that sounds like a 5F1, so a Silverface Champ would maybe work if the tone stack was bypassed...
