The Z-Verb is not true bypass; nor are the Fender 6G15 reverb units. It would be a lot harder to implement a true bypass in a circuit like this. There is a slight tone change when going through a reverb tank like this; it makes the guitar a little warmer and fatter, which a lot of people say is a good thing
Without going into the whole true bypass vs. buffer issue, I'll just say that true bypass isn't "hype", but the alternative of a pedal that loads down your signal and robs your tone of all its high end is definitely not preferable. When running true bypass effects you just have to remember that every cable and effect you add to the chain still adds resistance and capacitance which will still degrade your signal with every addition. Therefore, it's still a good idea to use a low impedance buffer in your chain even with true bypass effects.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
