I owned a BJ for a year. Sold it and never looked back. To me, putting and E120 in a BJ would be like putting a necklace on a swine but I respect others' choices.

I too never looked back, but I think the BJ is hardly a swine. It can get a much closer Jerry sound than the vast majority of Fender amps.
Especially with that boost button pushed on.

The BJ can get you somewhat close.
To give a more practical answer, the Fender Blues Junior actually has the same tone-stack voicing/values as the Jerry modded Twin preamp. It's the only stock amp I know of that right out of the box has the correct "Jerry" tone section values. Not that the component materials are ideal, but at least the actual voicing is right. In theory, if you have the "fat" button turned on, turn the bass way down or off, crank the treble nearly or all the way up, and use the mid knob for fullness, that's gonna be in the ballpark. Granted the small cabinet won't give the body that Jerry's cab's had, but still, we're in the ballpark, kind of.
this amp is highly under rated due to some design flaws
