Welcome, and congrats on an awesome amp! I've been gigging my '05 Maz 38 for years, always sounds good and 100% reliable. I did just buy a 2015 Maz Jr, (and I made sure I got the variable footswitch....agree with digs57 there), and emailed Dr Z about a possible issue which turned out to be nothing, but it was suggested that the amp could be modded to 2017 specs, so if you really want to consider that I would call or email Dr Z. On the other hand there's no way I'd want to update mine, sounds great as it is!
It is best to contact the Z shop for accurate info, but I heard about the upgrades I could do to my 2013 Sr and there were 2 or 3 modifications. A reduction in noise, increase in available reverb ("think surf's up" was the quote) and might have been one more. I agree with Mickey, mine sounds great as it is. Sounds great with a creamback G12m-65, but I think even better with a Z 12. I have the CB in the 1x12 cab but going to put the Z 12 back in the cab.

I had them decrease the bass a bit as it was pretty bottom heavy. General check up no other upgrades. I don't want them...i like my MAZ as is. I had first one in 2006 and 2nd in 2008. I am partial to the NR. Enjoy your amp. If you are thinking of any mods, try different speakers. Truth is MAZ can do just about anything. If I could only have one it would be the 38.

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."
