I don't know the Epi amp, but the cleans those Fenders deliver should be just fine. Carvin amps would be another to consider.

However, there is something else to consider. A lot of jazz cats prefer good solid state amps- not modelers- because they're capable of delivering super cleans. Again, Carvin has some good options, as do Roland and Quilter. Acoustic as I recall as well.

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

+1 to a solid state amp. Even a keyboard amp would be a good platform for jazz guitar b/c the eq is pretty flat. I had a lesson with Les Pack, an instructor at one of our universities in Arkansas, and he had a hollow body guitar, I think an ibanez, and played through an old Peavey 1x15 amp. So when I went to college and played in the jazz band, I used a very similar rig: Ibanez hollow, neck pu with tone rolled mostly off into my Peavey Bandit clean with the EQs all at 5.
Ibanez UV777 - Carvin TL60 & 727 - Jackson KE3
Splawn QuickRod - Mesa Stiletto & RoadKing - Peavey Ultra+ - Peavey Bandit
