Default Rockabilly/Paychobilly Tone.

Hey All, I was an acoustic guitar player before drifting away from playing for about 12 years... Iíve been playing again (relearning) for about a year and a half now, and have dedicated a good portion of time and energy to getting my skills and chops back.
That being said, I recently purchased an Epiphone ES-339, and while I love the guitar, and have been having a lot of fun jamming... I have never really had to deal with finding a guitar amp ďTone.Ē I can use the presets in my Recording Software Plug-ins (Ableton Live 9 Standard, with Bias FX) to get an ok tone, but none of them are really what I am looking for.
I have recently been getting to Rockabilly, Modern Rockabilly, and Psychobilly, but am having trouble find the right sound... any tips for the starting electric player...?
Thanks in Advance.

My opinion, first off, slapback echo. You've got to have that above all else.

Iím not completely inept at effects, but not for use with Electric Guitar. I purchased some inexpensive TC Electronic Pedals to experiment with, do you have a timing setting for whatís considered slapback, all the posts Iíve read are a little confusing.
Pedals owned:
ForceField Compressor,
Cinders OD,
EchoBrain Analog Delay,
Afterglow Chorus,
I also have a Boss GE-7 Eq, that use with my acoustic, when recording. I realize I need to experiment, but any starting settings would be appreciated! Thanks.

Probably try the EchoBrain delay with the repeats turned down and the time turned up?

or get something like this:

To get a decent slapback just dial your echo device to a really short setting. Then time your hits to it. Nirvana fun !!

I don't have this pedal, so am not familiar with the specific knob positions, but these settings seem like a reasonable place to start to find a slapback delay sound.
