OK, I understand that the factory probably doesn't have the capacity to do the mods to existing JAZ amps. Notice I didn't call them upgrades since I would have to hear the differences before I decided I liked them better than the original design, which is currently my favorite amp. However, would it be possible to buy the various caps, etc. so I could substitute them myself? I know I could source them elsewhere but this would be easier. Also, any instructions from the service dept. would be good. Something similar to the Dr's approved mods for the MAZ chassis.
CS Relic Nocaster w/Warmoth neck,custom Strat,custom humbucker Tele,Italia Rimini 12-string,Jazzmaster w/Lollars,SG Std P-90,'64 Silvertone Dano, Martin D-42 Koa,& a "fiddle"
RED MAZ 8 combo w/Scumback,'65 Ampeg Gemini 1,'68 Vibrolux Reverb,'77 Princeton Rev,'79 Orange Hustler,'75 Traynor YGM-3,Silvertone 1457.
Just curious if this is something that might be an option (sans the cabinet). Love my Jaz but really like what I have read about the Zluxe.
No not at this time.
Seems the answer is right here...its not a NO... I think it will be a option to move it closer to the Z-lux without actually cloning it, which would make no sense. I have been earing both and they are close at least to my ears. I will find out soon enough as I am off on a road trip to NYC to pick up the one I just bought. Between my MAZ38NR, Therapy and the 20/40...I should be good for a while..

There are probably all kinds of liability Doc would be faced,with if something should go wrong. Also, I doubt it would be economically feasible to make kits for what is undoubtably a small number of of conversions. My suggestion would be to sell the JAZ and buy a used Zlux when they surface.
