plasmids containing amber mutations in selectable markers

I am very interested in getting hold of a plasmid with amber mutations in
the selectable marker (preferably ampicillin).

I am trying to clone rare cDNAs which have been trapped with a reporter
gene which also contains the supF minigene. I would like to increase the
cloning efficiency by selecting for supF after ligating into a plasmid
which contained an amber mutation in the Ampicillin and then
electrotransforming a sup0 host.

Can anyone help me?
