I don`t know if anyone mentioned this amp, aside from waiting for good metal amp from version 3 ,and something in Vox AC30 ballpark this JC-120 amp has its legendary status for one of the best clean tones ever made from an amp.

I hope Mike will take it into consideration someday.

I owned a JC-120 a couple years ago. It is a good amp. The chorus in that amp is what people really want. I wouldn't say it takes pedals well. Way too bright.

I`ve been listening this amp for ages,cause one guy from my town played all his life on this amp. Clean tone is very specific. It sounds bright I agree, but somehow scream for 80thies and has its signature tone.

Chorus and spring effect plays big part to it.
It can fit well for slightly distorted 80thies tones, also when we could have possibliity to use various ir`s I think amp could be even more versatile then in real world, but original ir`s needs to be done in order to capture that clean tone.

Even Metallica using that amp for their clean tones, in live and in studio for ages.

I've never been asked to specifically use this amp in over forty years as a pro, OTOH, I'm all the time being asked for Fender, Marshall and Vox. I personally don't have an opinion about it, just no use for it. My own go-to amp for cleans is a '65 Twinreverb. With S-Gear, the Wayfarer is my standard, although I can dial-in good cleans with any of them.

Well I know I cant replicate that clean that amp possess, its very lost in 80thies and its not multitask amp, that is for sure, but its unique.
POD Farm had very nice emulation of Jazz Chorus amp which I know cant replicate, I sold my POD X3 Pro and kind a regretting doing that, not just cause of that amp, but few that I get used to, as well as great effect pedals etc..

Really would love this. I have a JC-75 which I use all the time on Rhodes piano but a JC-120 sim would be even better. But it would mean getting the chorus right, which is HARD I think.

Great amp, signature sound of one of my fav albums of all time: Sonic Temple by The Cult.

It would be a nice add to the collection.

Clean sound with their chorus and spring reverb mix sound so unique and instantly recognizable.
