I have a JCM 800... along with a few other good amps... but the JCM8 is my #1.

I get great clean tone and a great blues tone out of it with my USA Fender Strat.... It's got Custom Shop '69 pickups in it as well.

Like Superhuman said, the guitar generates most of the tone. The amp simply amplifies or colors that tone. What kind of guitar are you working with and what kind of pedals do you have??? If you're tone is too bitey (trebley) try to roll your tone knobs on your guitar back... or use the neck pickup rather than the bridge pickup...
