This year marks Roland’s 50th anniversary, and to celebrate in style the legendary amp and effects brand has unveiled a new-look version of its heralded JC-120 Jazz Chorus guitar amp.

Established in 1975, just three years after Roland was founded in April 1972, the JC-120 has gone on to become one of the most iconic guitar amps of its kind thanks to its prized clean tones and expansive chorus effect, and has been the sonic force behind some of the most influential songs in history.
