    Selling my Zon Sonus Custom 5 Buckeye Burl.

    Kills me to sell this thing, Not sure if I'll ever find a bass that I like the sound of more, but I just can't handle the string spacing.

    Buckeye Burl Top
    Ash Body
    Satin Finish
    34" Scale, 24 Frets
    Phenowood Fingerboard
    Side Dot Inlays
    Bartolini Soapbar Pickups (Dual Coil)
    Bartolini 3 Band Preamp (active treble, mid, bass) - 2 position mid frequency control: 250 Hz/800 Hz
    Black Hardware
    Weight: Approx 9 lbs. 10 oz.
    17.5 mm spacing

    Excellent Condition. Couple small dings as pictured, (more noticeble in the pictures than in real life). I believe i'm the 3rd owner, first two bought and sold it (they hardly played it), been my main for about a year. One of the previous owners swapped out the main volume knob for a smaller one (for easier palm muting, I would say good call). The B string on this thing is absolutely insane, never played anything like it.

    asking [C]$2600 USD[/C] $2100 USD obo plus shipping. Willing to trade for high end 5 strings, looking for something with a more classic vibe, sadowsky, fbass vf5 ect. Shipped in a Zon gig bag.

    So I have some bad news. I forgot the zon in the car the other day (only for about 3 hours) and a small crack in the finish appeared, about an inch long. Its not noticable from a distance, just up close. I getting a hold of Zon and Pat Wilkins to see what it would cost to refinish the bass. That's the price I will discount from the price above. So this is your chance to get an amazing bass for a crazy price.

    Wow, this bass is amazing! I have a Modulus Q5 I'm looking to get rid of and replace with a zon sonus as I just don't dig the modulus 35" scale but I love graphite/CF necks! This is a great price!

    Do you have any sound clips or any footage of you playing this bass? What wood is the fretboard? It is 34" scale, correct? Thanks.

    Yup still for sale! Here is a clip of me playing it

    I have sound clips I can email you (recorded by the previous owner, they more accurately represent the sound of the bass then my video)
    It's a phenowood fingerboard and 34" scale. The neck is a beast, the B string on it is crazy because of the Graphite neck. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    VERY interested! Yes, please send clips to my email, jeffreymartin0@msn.com.

    Regarding the crack in the finish, did you hear anything back from Zon? How about info on the year?

    Thanks!!
