Or, is it something different? Perhaps, it's a magical thin-to-full control like my Ghia has..
It isn't a Ghia style control. It is more like the cut control on a Maz, but perhaps a bit more range. It is a power amp control though, the way the Maz cut control is. Not as flexible, but the GT makes up for that with balls out gain.

But that's one of the things that gives it its charm. There's no tone control to load the preamp down, yet the power section cut control gives you a great deal of tone control flexibility.
And, the massive gain is controllable, articulate, dynamic and dripping with harmonics. It's nothing like a cascaded preamp gain type amp. It truly is like Dr. Z's version of a Trainwreck with serious Cleveland attitude. I still don't think the videos do it justice. It's like watching a video of a guy driving a Ferrari vs. actually driving one.
so far, i have not been satisfied with any description of the mazerati gt tone "control". i have owned a maz senior 38 with a cut control, and it is nothing like that. to my ears. my ears assuredly are not to be trusted these days, however.
This British Invasion style rhythm guitarist is intrigued with the Mazerati GT. Somehow I'll just bet that even a guy like ME could find comparatively mild-mannered tonal happiness with this amp, since the clean tones on the clip were already good.

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.
