I'm trying to save up for several guitar related things this summer, including a new amp. I'm a music major at a small college and I'm involved in the jazz program, so I need a good sounding clean amp to replace my line 6 (gets a decent clean sound but thats it). I'm trying to keep it around $600, but thats variable. I'm thinking about a used roland jc, or some kind of fender.
What would be some other good amps that have good clean headroom as well as a good clean sound? and if I go the fender route what amp should i maybe look into?

if u go fender check out the blues junior. if u increase ur budget a bit more, a hot rod deluxe or blues deluxe.

or a peavey classic 30, vox ac15, laney vc15/30

He said clean and the Blues and Hot Rods have increased gains over the standard Fender pre-amps. A lot of Fender amps would be good, I'd recommend extra power than normal for clean headroom though and if you're talking 50W plus that budget would force you into used territory I believe.
The Roland JC120 is a great amp but I don't know about prices.
Traynor have some good inexpensive "Fender"ish amps too. Brand new 40 -50W may be in your range.
Moving on.....

If it's for jazz, I can't recommend the Roland Cube series highly enough. The JC clean channel is modelled after the JC-120, and has great crisp cleans. Perfect for jazz. Polytones get a lot of votes normally, as does the ZT lunchbox. Check out the Phil Jones Cub too, but I don't know about the prices.

The Cube 20 or 30 would be perfect if its just you, maybe the 80 or a used 60 if you'll be playing with others.

my budget even though it is around $600, I would be willing to alter it a little considering I want to be able to use this amp for years down the road. And used is definitely an option for me.

is the classic 50 you have is too big or you just don't want it at school?

do you need an amp smaller in size? $600 is a good budget, what is the nearest major city?
