I had one years ago. Sold it. Regretted it for two decades.
A few weeks ago, found one on eBay. 80s-era. A bit beat up, but works great.
Interesting how many of the JC-120s on this thread have other amps stacked on top of them. That's a Princeton Chorus on mine. I thought about making the stack higher: maybe Pathfinder 15 -> Champ 600 -> ZT Lunchbox -> Pignose.
You're perfectly right, soulman! It's 8 kg for the Cube and ridiculous 6 for the JC! B-) And the sound is phenomenal, unless you want to keep up with a full band.
But for these occasions I have my no. 2 stack, and I tell you I never push both amps for more than volume 2, cos' otherwise my band - including our quite heavy drummer - would definitely not keep up with me... ;-)
I'll bet it does sound nice with an acoustic. I've been using my 40xl and it does a nice job as well. Nothing like those Roland clean to bring out the harmonics in an acoustic.
I plugged into a new Jazz Chorus 120 at the guitar store last weekend and was blown away. It sounded better than any of the Fender amps I have including my DRRI. However it certainly would be a monster to play in the house. I'm wondering if the smaller versions sound anywhere near as good as the JC 120?
I noticed that on the GC used website they have 2 (120)s for $399. There are none on any of the CL cities near me.
Yeah, its an amp that can cause alot of 'could you turn down' responses!
Live I've been facing mine towards the back of the stage and using a 1x12'' combo cabinet loaded with a JBL D120F and tilt back legs as my monitor/sound source. It works great as nothing is blasting away at our vocalist but I can still get the volume I need.
