The chorus on this thing is legendary too. I can't help but think I've heard this same chorus many times before in studio recordings. That would make sense since I hear this is a studio as well as a stage standard.
The reverb is tops as well. The distortion is a little weak, but I have a Boss GT-10 to handle all my effects needs since I have to play a multitude of different styles. Works good since the amp has a stereo input, and the GT-10 has a stereo output.
The Amp holds up well on the road which is a plus if you have to travel a lot, and the casters are a life saver.
I recommend this amp to anyone playing ANY style of music that wants versatile professional sound. I don't think you can find a better clean tone at any price, and it won't muddy up your effects.
On the down side for some guitarists... If your chops are sloppy this amp is unforgiving. You really can hear everything on it. If you practice clean like you're supposed to, you are in for the tonal treat of your live. Enjoy!
The distortion actually isn't as bad as others have said. If used lightly, it has a very unique tone. That being said, I use a completely different for my distortion tones.
This amp is a classic and has been unsurpassed.
If you watch concerts, pay attention to the amps on stage. Chances are there's a JC-120 somewhere, even today.
My one minor nit would be that the built-in distortion is hardly worth mentioning. You'll need an effects box if you want to get down and dirty. But the JC-120 is so pure and clean that it is the perfect amp for any guitarist who already uses external effects (like a POD or separate pedals). I no longer even use the built in reverb and chorus (though both are top notch) mostly because I play through a Pod XT Live, and my sounds already have reverb and such built in.
If you're looking for the purest clean sounds that bring out the full range of tones from your guitar, you can't go wrong. If you are looking for a hard rockin', head bangin' monster all in one box, you may want to look elsewhere (unless you use an external effects system to get those sounds - the JC-120 will output them perfectly).
Oh, and also, each channel has a "bright" switch which I normally leave off since it gets way too "trebley" for my tastes.
