Nice job billy and welcome! I don't get as excited about new "ANYTHING" these days and certainly when my opinion of Doc's MAZ Juniors & Seniors is at the highest level.....when a new Amp arrives I'm kind of ho-hum right out of the gate.
HOWEVER....I heard the EZG-50 a few months ago and did a small report here on it. To me, this thing is a PERFECT amplifier in every way.....maybe the Blackface that never was, because what I heard was a smooth, gorgeous, clear amplifier that stayed together and with the "Pre"&"Post" knobs make this sound great through the volume range.
I love the way Z adds Pre-Amp (gain) to the signal as the way he does with the MAZ series.
Obviously that Telecaster sounds great, but what about that GoldTop? To me, many of the best tones in history have been Les Pauls thru Blackface Amps.
thats a beauty,, i have also really liked a tele through this amp,, at first i didnt think it would work, but i was wrong,, i like cranking up the pre,, but i have to tell you, this amp blew two pictures off a shelf 15 feet away. it is one loud amp.

The thing everybody's got to remember about amps is that "wattage" is just one part of the equation of loudness. Besides speaker area/sensitivity, there's something else that makes a huge difference: output transformers. The EZG's got a great, efficient tranny; all that power generated at the tubes is getting put to good use. ;D

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.
