Deluxe Reverb RI, Dr. Z Z-28 and a Silverface Twin Reverb...
I'm being serious here, please read on...
My Carmen Ghia covers my needs completely on that end of the scale, but I still need a good Fender-ish clean sound with reverb at different volume levels from moderate to high. If I could handle the Twin's weight routinely it would do it for me, but I can't; therefore the Z-28 and DRRI. The proceeds from selling these three would cover the EZG-50 and then some.
Keep in mind I have a good selection of cabs, most of which would work with the EZG. And if it really only weighs 40 lbs. I could actually carry the thing.

IMO it will cover the Fender spectrum easily. The Z28 is a great amp...you can get somewhat close (but not exact) tonal offerings from the EZG. However, the Z28 sure does break up quicker and has that sonic goodness that 6v6's bring. Good Luck!

If clean is what you want, then you'll get plenty and then some. To me the EZG doesn't have the characteristics of the blackface, maybe I'm use to hearing something else. It's a clean machine like a twin but without the brittleness of the Twin. Very clean with tons of power and plenty of bottom.
You are going to get different tones from the EZG than what the Z-28 will offer. The EZG will do a nice job covereing all of the tones generated by the Deluxe Reverb and the Twin. If you were going to sell amps to get the EZG I'd start with the fenders. If you can keep the Z28 and still get the EZG then you will be best off. The Ghia, z28 and EZG should cover you for all wattages. Hope that helps.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.

doctorice: Just replaced a kitchen faucet. Hardest part was getting the old one out -- had a weird flange on it. Good luck, Matt!

GuitarZ: After finally training myself after 4 days to not bother trying to turn on the guest bathroom light because of the power outage, I just found myself bracing for the sound of the generator as I opened the garage door and it's now quiet. Power Back!
