However, if you're willing to go with a rackmount + power amp setup, the Pod Pro does some nice Boogie MkII sounds, and the Sansamp PSA-1 gets downright sinister. Both are very versatile for recording.
The Engl 530 preamp is another very sweet sounding unit (I actually prefer its tone to Boogie amps). However, I would only go with it if you're serious about going with a rack setup.
If you're set on sticking with a 1x12 setup, and you love the tone of your amp, I'd invest in a THD Hot Plate or Marshall Powerbreak to bring the volume down to more ear friendly volumes.

the johnson sounds great, having the ext cab, you can spread out the stereo sound. i've only used it here in my studio, not out at a gig, but it's loud enough...like all solid state amps it has a high end thing , i can't really explain, but when you play a solid state you hear it way up the neck in the hi register.. if you program all your own sounds maybe you can get rid of it, i'm not sure if everyone hears it, different things bother different people. i also have a johnson j station, and a line6 pod, and the vox valvetronix 120...but them i also have a marshall, and an old ampeg, and several other tube amps. i think it's what ever works for you, and what ever you like. i've played guitars with no name brand on stage because i liked them, and i've played hi end guitars on stage for the same reason. if it feels good to you, that's what will matter...i don't know much about this boogie amp of yours either, i'm curious...since you already own it, and you like it, have you looked for an inexspensive attenuator, the hot plate might be too much $, but there are others...what guitar do you play thru the amp? where might i find a picture of this amp(the boogie)? myles loud

Sure, it lacks some of the chewy tube goodness (of course), but I've never met anybody (except for gear snobs like us ) that can tell the difference. The key is to start from scratch and create your own sounds for your own guitars. The presets are trash.
I don't play the same kind of music as you, but here's something (1.3MB) that I did last night with it:

Wow. Thanks man! Those skinny strings are real nice and easy to play.
