I use an external LADSPA host (jack-rack or AMS) loaded with a chain 
consisting of;

Phaser (http://quitte.de/dsp/caps.html#Phaser)
10 band graphic EQ (http://quitte.de/dsp/caps.html#Eq)
mono amplifier (SWH plugins)
valve preamp simulation (http://quitte.de/dsp/caps.html#PreampIII)
10 band graphic EQ (http://quitte.de/dsp/caps.html#Eq)
mono amplifier (SWH plugins)

I haven't yet found a satisfactory speaker-emulation so I run the 
processed signal through my guitar amp's power amp and mic it up.

I've found the above chain to be pretty close to the 'real thing'.  YMMV.
