    I bought this bass used with frets...since I'm in SF, I called Joe Zon he made it fretless for me...even with Koa lines..really nice guy and great job!
  4. That's what I suspected...

    It looks really classy, especially next to a Fender and MTD! I dream of owning a Zon fretless, and that one is a real beauty. Good stuff!

    Nice Zon, Hman.:) The MTD and Fender aren't too shabby either.

    I'm going to use it for worship! Maybe you can give me some tips for the fretless set up!

    You are too kind, sir.:oops:

    I'm no fretless setup expert, I just set the action as low as it will go without the string rattling against the board.

    I will give you a tip that would probably make Joe cringe. I had to shim the neck on mine to get the action as low as I like. But I may like it lower than you do.

    does anyone else see that the ZON headstock is very similar to the Pentabuzz's headstock? Interesting!
