Clarus + CXM-110 as guitar rig?

  1. I'm going back to my original plan from a while back and getting a Clarus for my portable rig.

    Would the Clarus work well as a jazz guitar amp in conjunction with my CXM-110? Acoustic Image seems to be advertising the Clarus and Contra combos for keyboards and guitar as well.

    Back when I had my WT-300, it made a pretty good guitar setup--no distortion, obviously, but the fat, warm clean sound made up for my Kramer hair-metal axe's inherent shrillness.

    I figure that if I want distortion I can get one of those modern digital amp + cabinet-modeling boxes, or just get a multieffects box and have a super-portable rig. (There's something so alluring about being able to carry your entire setup in one trip--guitar on your back, speaker cabinet in your right hand, duffel bag with amp, cables, and effects in your left.)
