Hat tip to @MilwMark for putting this on my radar. After trying one out at the music store yesterday, I have a JC-40 on order that should be here in a few days. I sold my neglected Inspired By John Lennon Casino yesterday. It was a great guitar, but wasn't getting any play time. I had more guitars than I needed, but only one amplifier and the sale gave me a decent budget for buying another one. I have been giging with an Ac15 for a few years. I love how it sounds, but I'm tired of lugging it up and down stairs for rehearsals so I've had my eyes out for a light, but loud amp that I could use as a backup / grab and go amp. I basically just walked around the show room and tugged on amp handles until I found some that lifted up effortlessly with one hand. The Katana 50, JC-40, and Orange Rocker 15 all met this criteria, but the the combination of weight, size, sound, and volume with the JC-40 was my favorite. I actually liked them all. I'm fact, the used Katana 50 at $160 was probably best deal, but the JC-40 felt a little lighter and just had a huge sound compared to the others. That mid knob is the key I think. They wouldn't sell me the floor model, but I'm told mine will be there in a few days. I'm pretty stoked. Between the Vox and the Jazz Chorus, I have the two most coveted sounds of my youth.
