    a forum search turned up only a few opinions on the Fender American Deluxe Zone Bass. These results were kind of old too.

    Any current opinions on this bass would be appreciated?

    I'm looking for a second bass to complement my 62 RI Jazz.

    Thanks!
     
  2. I like the Zone basses, I like the versatile tone. They are light weight. Small neck which siuts me and my small hands just fine!

    It looks quite un-Fenderish, especially the Walnut, and the shape looks more like Zon, but might be good.

    BTW always a different smily for each reply, Treena? Soon you will run out of them... :eek: :p ;)
     
  4. They do look more like a Zon, I realized this after you pointed it out!


    Not to worry there are thousands of these little smilies running around!

    Still haven't been able to find one to play. :-(

    How are these basses for slapping?

    Thanks!
