Great news Z! My preference would be keep the channels separated and switchable. Not sure why the original version channels worked wonderfully for my gigging needs and don't need a master volume. The inefficient g12-65 and a couple clicks on the brake lite made the amp gig friendly for me. Kick in the drive channel for a nice boost in volume and gain, 'nuf said. I'm obviously in the minority. If the master is out of the circuit when turned up, sure add it as long as the presence control is still present. ;-) And offer a 1x12 in the lighter cab like the new wreck cab loaded with a creamback would be righteous!

Back in July 2010, (Ekko) had a thread in the Amp Questions/Toubleshooting section near the bottom of Page 14 there is some more talk on the desire for the presence + MV. I think that configuration might get the nod. Everything is a compromise. I USED to think some sort of VOL2 EQ shift switch for use at lower volumes would be cool, but I am not sure I would even use them now. Great that the Doc is looking into this.
If the MV version has an unused speaker output jack that hole might be able to be used to mount a presence control without having to permanently alter anything. I don't own a Galaxie so I'm just throwing this out there as a possibility. I've used this trick to do mods on several other amps.

After a long absence from my collection, Galaxie 112 comb serial #076 has come home .... I've been having an 'affair' with this particular combo for the past several years - to the point my wife said I need to get my head into the daylight and see what's what ..... I am grateful for her patience and clarity (my wife and the amp)
I have owned/tried a later version with the MV mod ...... and I am quite sure that I will be keeping my combo stock-standard set-up with the two channels and Presence control .... it is what works for me and makes me happy - it has taken my a long time to figure that out, and that's all I gotta say about that
cheers always, eh

I've been thinking about a Galaxie for a couple years off and on. The Master AND Presence .... well i think that would be swEEt. And then a Ghia with a Wizzer unit like Neil Young ..... that's to much .... but maybe, just maybe.

Since this thread is back in the recent mix, I have to ask: Doc said a while back he was considering re-issuing the Galaxie with maybe a few tweaks. I know he's had his hands full with the Therapy and Z-Lux since then, but has anyone heard anything more about that idea?

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."

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.
