I'm picking up that JCM900 SL-X in about three weeks and I'm just gonna buy an amp for cleans in the future. I was thinking a Fender, but which one? I'm open to a head or combo.

Carvin Legacy. Better cleans than Fender.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

its too bad you couldn't buy a JCM900 dual reverb instead so you can have a guns n' roses-style cleans. You can use an OD pedal with it and get the same, if not more, gain as an SL-X

Yeah, it's really sad, but I'd rather sacrifice the DR's cleans and some money for better cleans and more versatility.

How would a '65 Deluxe Reverb re-issue work for me? What about the Hot Rod series?

I dont, the X-100B has amazing cleans, my dad always gets mad when i make his vintage deluxe reverb sound dirty with my insane amount of headroom!!!

But personaly i recomend the fender twin reverb or deluxe, theyre so damn clean!!!

My Bassman gets great cleans.

I'm kinda leaning towards a DLX Reverb at this point. I'm about happy with any sort of Fender amp. I love their cleans and I've never experienced a Fender (tube) amp with bad cleans.

Id go for the Mesa Lone Star, as it is pretty incredible imo

To be fair though, Ive never tried any of the high end Fenders

Have you ever played the Bassman?

However, the Deluxe Reverb sounds great and if you need reverb I guess its the way to go

i have a hot rod deluxe and it has really nice cleans and hte overdrive isnt bad. the distortion on the other hand is not great.
i recommend it but if you have enough money, go for the fender twin reverb.
