    Finally decided to move into the "big leagues" and get a new rig. Dr.Z Prescription (non-ES) 45 watt head and Dr. Z Z-Best 2x12 cab with an Eminence Red Fang and Tone Tubby ceramic. The only thing is, I don't have a guitar right now as UPS currently has it in their posession, but I have heard great reviews.

    Fender Eric Johnson strat on the way...
    Upgraded from a Peavey Delta Blues...

    By far, this will be the best setup that I have owned. Waiting for the guitar is KILLING ME!!!!

    Very nice, congratulations...I can feel your excitement!

    ...don't you have any friends that could loan you a guitar in the meantime? That's got to be killing you just looking at it with no guitar.

    Congrats on the new rig. I have been a fan of Z's amps for a long time & I have a few of them as well. My next Z amp is going to be the Rt. 66.

    I like my Maz Sr. and Carmen Ghia. How is that Z-best cab? How heavy is it. I'm looking for something a little more compact than my Mesa 2x12.

    The ZBest is wonderful. It doesn't seem as heavy as other cabs I've lugged around, but it's built like a tank. I can carry it in and out of gigs with one hand and anchor it against my leg without a problem. sometimes it's better to use two hands though. IMO, the tone this thing puts out far outweighs the aggrevation of carrying a 2x12 cab around.

    The cab itself weighs around 60-65 lbs...
    I have never actually played the Z-Best, mainly going off the reviews and the fact the cab is made for the Z amps.

    I recently got a Z Best 2x12 myself, with a Vintage 30 and a G12H30:

    Tried to take the back panel off to see which speaker was where and I couldn't even pry it loose, that's how tightly assembled it is. Easily lifted and transported with one hand; certainly lighter than my Bogner OS 2x12 and about the same weight as my Peavey Classic 50 2x12 combo.

    Nice score!! The Rx is a great amp. Very touch sensitive. Enjoy! Dr Z and the crew make a great amp.

    Nice amp. It must SUCK not to have a guitar. Still, just sit quietly and listen to the sustain :)

    How do you not have a guitar? It's like not having a pair of shoes. I leave guitars all over the place like johnny appleseed should I ever need one. They're at home, the studio, friends houses...I wish they made one I could fold into my pocket :)
