Well, a few weeks ago I bought praisegeetarman's Z-Verb out of the B&S to match my beloved Z-Wreck set. Well, after a few Winter weather delays it showed up today. It looks as good as new. I haven't tried it yet but all looks fine.
Once I try it out I'll snap some picks of the new matching set. I'm sure the verb will be to die for.
I really like mine. Very organic and sounds great with just a taste all the way up to surf city. It can also get "way out there" spacy and I rarely use more than half of its range. Much nicer than the Fender reissue I had previously and no comparison with any pedal I've tried. That silver and wood Z-wreck cosmetic is cool also. Mine is surf green and doesn't match my brunette amps but the color seems to suit the unit. Hope it's everything you are expecting.

I tried the Z-Verb today and it's wonderful. I'm having a little trouble with the foot switch as the unit is crapping out when I use the foot switch. However, I suspect there may be some oxidation in the foot switch jack. I'll try to clean it up and see what happens. I'm sure its nothing serious and I should get that cleared up soon.
However, the reverb is fabulous. It just holds together so well even when set really wet. The neat thing too is that the unit seems to be made in the same year as my Z-Wreck ('V' serial #) and the front wooden panel is a great match for my set (not that it really matters....but I like it!).
Overall, a great set. Now this is a 'Z-Wreck 'combo'

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.
