    Recommendations for a head/amp for cleans?

    Looking to get Fender-esque cleans, decent amount of headroom, and able to do jazz/fusion like soloing. Something that i don't have to crank to get a good, balanced clean sound. I've been trying to adapt to my 05+'s sound, but its been a losing battle, even with my S's 5-way, AND a coil split, I'd rather just have an amp that's made to do clean. No real limit on price, if its worth it, I'll reach. Things I had in mind: 65 Twin(reissue, obv), Jet City Jca~, Fender HR series, blackstar ht series. Maybe a Mesa Tremo, or Mark series for superversatility. had a few more but am drawing blanks ATM. Thanks for any input brosephs.

    And just like the amplifier, I take it you come with two inputs?

    -Sunn T50C, if you can find one.
    -Roland JC120
    -Fender Twin Reverb
    -Vox AC15/30
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    For an amp that will JUST do clean and fusion style tones, get a Fender. For an amp that does both that AND your current tones, trade in your 6505+ towards a 50 watt EVH 5150iii head. Everyone here was masturbating furiously to them when they came out a while ago, and they've got that fender clean channel.
    Do you know what time it is? It's time to FARK SHEET ARRRRRP!!
