Absolutely killer amp! I had a Maz38 that I never bonded with that I was able to trade for this beauty. It's a 1999 2x12 combo.
This amp has a cooling fan installed: Was this done by Z when the amp was made? Or did a previous owner (apparently it went through a few hands) install it? It's very noisy... and I definitely can't record with that thing going. Can I uninstall it? Or does it need the fan to keep cool?
What exactly does the expand switch do? I read a few people saying that when you flip it up it gets a lot more Voxy. But some further insight would be great!
The guy who sold it to me told me it was 50+ watts... Though all the info I can find says it's actually 45 watts. Is that true?
Anyways... Any info on this amp would be welcome! Thanks

It probably is an original factory fan - I've got them in a Bluesman and a Super Z from around that time. It's probably ok to unplug the fan (they are a little noisy) as long as you're not going to be pushing it hard for a prolonged time. However, if you're gonna be cranking it for a couple hours - all bets are off. leave it plugged in.
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

Joey Beverages: hayesgary307 try a Z 210 or Z 410 with Galaxie ... also, yes the G1265 is most tasty and excellent

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
