This has been a topic brought up throughout the years several times and a handful of custom jobs have chased various solid state amp tones. Regardless of the topography used to amplify the signal, the same two things are being done: the signal is being amplified and shaped between a few gain stages and an EQ is sculpting it. That said, there won't be any transistor based modules or a need for them.
The Super Clean will provide JC120-like tones and has performed favorably next to the real deal in my shop. I'm actually working on a Music Man repair right now and there is nothing particularly cool about it's preamp design to be honest. Same thing for Peavey solid state (which I repair often as well). Remember an amps sound is a combination of the preamp, power amp and the speaker/enclosure. The speaker and enclosure have a huge part in sculpting the sounds of any amp.

Some of my favourite guitarists have used solid state pre amp musicman (paul barrere - littlefeat, mark knophler) or peavey - skynyrd amps.... Was just a thought.....my musicman RP65 sounds totally unique and I love the built in phaser hence asking about FX.
