Failing that, look up an Epiphone Electar Coronet.


Epiphone also made an Electar Century


A couple of years ago they did an 18 watt, short run 75th anniversary version. It had the same aesthetic but was a more modern amp with "pull boost" volume control.




You can find these used on Reverb in the $400 range. There's a Vintage Guitar review HERE.
Interesting but definitely not for me. I should have put in that portability, durability, and ease of transport are also requirements.
