Not a dumb question! Newbies & veterans alike are always welcome to ask away...
Mostly, yes, they're essentially a similar preamp design (only Doc could really tell if all the component values are exactly the same, but they're practically the same). They all do that cool thing where you can control the high- and low-end breakup with the two knobs on the tone stack. If I remember correctly, the Route 66 was released first, and then either the KT-45 and/or the Delta 88, and then the Z-28, and then the M12? So, from lowest-output to highest-output, you've got:
Now, the difference in output power & tubes alone can change the tone quite a bit. Also, some of these have "ultra-linear" output transformers and some don't (I'm mostly sure) so that will affect how they break up at high/low volume, etc. Sorry for the long answer... but your short answer is "yes."
Own or have owned: M12, Carmen Ghia, Rx JS, MAZ 18 Jr NR, Monza, Z-28, Route 66, Therapy, DB4, Remedy, Prescription, EZG-50, SRZ-65 LE, & Delta 88 Z-Drive | Brake Lite SA & Air Brake
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

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!
