Do you want some authentic fun? Track down an Epiphone Electar Zephyr amplifier from the 1930s. It looks like a big band music stand. A friend had one of these when I was young and it was really good looking. The "E" fretwork is a rarity these days.

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.
