After watching several demo videos, seems this amp (specifically the JC-40) might satisfy my tonal palette but haven't played through one. The local GC never stocks a floor model. Currently using an inexpensive solid state Fender modeling amp. Enjoy the occasional foray to the British and metal models, but w/o a doubt the clean Blackface tones are my favorite. These JC's are solid state, have adequate volume for my use, don't require software tweaking, possess popular onboard effects and are super clean apparently. Just looking for some comments pro/con from any JC users.
