Just bought the amp last night after many decades away from Fender amps. Looking for some time and frustration saving suggestions on achieving good jazz tone. I am playing through a single Kent Armstrong pickup on a thinline hollow body guitar. Trying to find close approximations to Joe Pass and Kenny Burrell sounds. Thanks very much!

Hi RussC, welcome to the forums.
Quite a few 'Jazz' players on the forums...not sure how many of them have experience with the Champion 100, but I'm sure someone will be along to help you out.
I'm afraid I can't be of much help. I DO have a friend that has the amp, and I've played through it many times, but I have never searched for a Jazz tone on it. Very versatile amp, so I've no doubt it's in there though.

Searching for a certain tone on certain amps CAN be frustrating at times---but also fun.

I’ve tried to learn Jazz-guitar. At times I feel I don’t even understand Jazz music. In fact I just got a jazz guitar book from the library. To me, you have to start with a nice strong clean tone. Then add reverb, chorus, delay as needed. I like the blackface Twin Reverb amp model. If it sounds good to you, it must be good. Whatever you try I think the Champion 100 can deliver, with the effects and an open back 2-12 spk’s, its a nice sound.

From the Champion 100 manual:
Channel 1 provides a clean tone based on Fender Blackface™ amplifiers such as the Twin Reverb® amp.
Channel 2 also has Voice #16: JazzMaster™ flat, solid-state clean.
