    I visited the Gibson plant this past weekend and played one,I liked it better than the thunderbird,I did'nt play it through a amp but it felt good and seemed like a nice bass,for the money it aint bad.

    It's actually not a bad sounding or playing bass, although it's not for me (once you go Zon, you don't go back! ;) ).

    Even better, I happen to know where a used one in mint condition is hanging. :D It's a yellowish/amber color, rosewood fingerboard, comes with a gigbag. It's on consignment at Bass Central (where I work, natch), the asking price is $250. Gimme a shout if you're interested (800-545-8813) or email me.

    Hey Flipperwhite!
    Did you also play the Epiphone EB-0 or EB-3 of Epiphone??? I bought the EB-0 and I like it very much, how do you think??

    Thanks a lot!

    sorry Matt,all they had at the time were the exp. and a thunderbird and about 5 zillion guitars of all types which was kind of disipointing.
