Hi and welcome! No expert on how similar or not the two amps are as I don’t own the EZG (yet). But the sense making part I can contribute to. It only makes sense to own one guitar, one amp, a cable, spare tubes, extra set of strings, and a few picks.... With that behind us I say go for it, try one out! The reverb is drastically different, very full and luscious. The EZG is voiced more like a BF and less Vox/Marshally like the Maz. Also more headroom. From what I know they would complement each other very nicely. Plus, everyone needs multiple Zs.
Z-Lux Combo in Black, Z-Lux Head/1x12 Z Cab in Red, Cure, Maz 8 Head/1x12 Z Cab In Black, another Maz 8 head/1x12 cab in blond, blond Z-Verb, Red Z-Verb, Maz 18 NR MKII in Black, Therapy blonde, Red Monza, Air Brake, and few more now, but who is counting? Past: Monza 1x10 in Red, Mini Head in Red, Maz 18 Head in Black (Baby come back...)
I just bought a Maz 18 a few weeks ago, and actually just bought a Z-Lux today (quite similar to the EZG-50).
The Maz 18 is more "British" sounding (Vox, Marshall) with its EL84 tubes, and the Z-Lux/EZG-50 are more in the "American" space (Fender). I'm no amp expert, so I'm sure the sound has a lot more to do with the circuits AND the tubes, I am just saying what I know.
I struggled with achieving a deep woody blues sound like the video at the bottom of this post on my Maz... I struggled for weeks, trying all kinds of pedals, and just couldn't nail it down. I bought the Z-Lux to cover that same american tone.
It arrives soon, but I'm really confident it will make an EXCELLENT complement to the Maz, to cover a larger tone variety.
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.

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!
