Let me put it this way: Come to think of it, I CAN have any three Z amps. And I have the Stingray, the RXES, and the SRZ-65. And at this particular moment, I'm not really jonesing for anything else. Maybe later, but... well.... yeah, a Ghia would be nice, as would a 1x12 Stang Ray combo too...
You only get three because I'm limiting myself to three. :-) I'm ingoring some debt that I could be paying off but I'm cutting myself off at 3. After that, I get my financial ducks in a row. (Well, after that and probably one more guitar) :-)
1 red Jazz 20/40 head
1 red Antidote head
1 red/blond Stingray head
1 black/blond Stingray head
1 black SRZ 65 head
2 LTD SRZ 65 heads
1 black 6545 head
2 black KT 45 heads
2 red LTD Ghia heads
1 black Ghia head
1 red Remedy head
1 red Maz GT head
1 black Mazerati head
2 sets of Silver ZWreck heads & cabs,1 Silver ZVerb
1 red Delta 88
1 black RX ES head
1 red Maz SR rev 2x12 red combo
1 z best cab 2x12 black
Stingray (got one), EZG-40 (gonna get one), and last either a MAZ38(had one), or a Z28 (would love to have one). My MAZ 38 was very cool and versatile, but I LOVE the Doc's EF-86 amps!

OK, here's my story. Within the last year and a half, I've purchased 5 Z amps. I know I know, kind of excessive. But, IF I could only pick three, here goes: 1) StangRay 2) MAZ Jr. NR 3) Probably the RxES that I have on order right now. I did get to test this amp before buying it, and I was blown away. That's why I'm putting it in my top 3. I have played some of the other Z amps using the bigger tubes, but there's just something magical about his EL84 amps. Even though they use the same output tubes, they all sound unique in their own special way. These are the tones that I've had in my head for a long time and never quite been able to get there. That is until I was introduced to Dr. Z amps.
I am currently trying to decide which might be my first Z, but hey, I can play this game too!
RxES. Wow. Simply wow. Mazerati GT. Can I put a deposit down on one now? Mini Cooper. No, really. Why is there not an 8-10W Z? Or better still, a 5-8W? *Everyone* needs an amp like that. I would buy one yesterday.

There might be two Delta 88s out there, based on a skim of the dealerships this morning, on the loose assumption that their web pages reflect actual in-stock items. If I couldn't find a Delta 88, I might go for an RX-ES, because I've wanted one for over two years.
Remedy and SRZ-LE heads. Z-Best, 210 convertible, and an Airbrake. Several guitars.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
