    Newsted played trans-black Alembic Spoilers.
    (Same body as the Persuader, but the electronics are a little different.)

    How does this bass sound? Is it more on the bright side or round, bloomy side? I might be interested in buying it, had a deal for a Zon but it seems the seller couldnt care less...

    It sounds clean, clear and loud with piano like sustain. If needed, the low-pass filter tone control can quickly cut the highs, leaving punchy mids and lows. I don't have any sound clips. Email me for some hi-res photos.

    I care. :)

    It's certainly a beautiful bass, if my Zon deal really falls through I will PM you about it. I really dont know if the user selling me the Zon is reluctant or simply has no time to deal with this, he seems to be online quite often though so I'll give it one more week and I'll PM you if theres nothing new then.
