Considering a used early 90s production (so stated) Dr. Z Maz 18 NR head...how does one of that era compare to current production? Are they the same design? Any worthwhile improvements to the current production models?
Appreciate any thoughts...thanks for your time! Bryan
Ditto what billyguitar said. I know the Maz 38 was out first (before the 18) and supposedly the 18 was origionally intended to be a lower power version. As it turned out more to his liking, I believe the 38 ended up being rethought in newer production to emulate the newer 18. I also remember reading that Fat Sound Guitars suggested the Doc build a barer bones model without the reverb to drop the price point a bit and hence the NR was born. I don't know any of the dates in the evolution process but what has me curious is if the NR was conceived in the early 90's

From the doc himself:
Here's a little bit of info for you guys. I started to serialize amps in 1990. I used the letter A to signify 1990, so A - XXXX would be an amp built in 1990. P - XXXXX would be an amp built in 2005.
So the way I figure it, the letter O would be 2004
Steve's right - O indicates 2004. I own a 1993 Dr. Z and the serial # starts with D. Mind you, the serial # is handwritten, and I suppose it would be possible to think the handwritten D looks like an O...

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.
