Line level and Mic levels are very different, line levels being much 
hotter. A line level pumped inot a mic level input will be distorted, at 
best, without some sort of buffering. If you have some sort of buffer (i.e. 
external mixer) you can try in between the guitar and amp, you should try 
that, or try using an external mic instead.
