    with my recent Sadowsky acquisitions (all fretted) i've relearned the value of those metal bars.

    Damn you for posting a maple top that I actually like. There goes my reputation. The upward sweep of the quilt and the downward curve of the fingerboard are really beautiful. Damn you.

  9. Sorry, but I think that fingerboard extension is ridiculous. I played a Ritter Raptor a couple months ago, which has the same type of fingerboard, and I found it pretty much impossible to play those high notes. Unless you know how to use thumb position on an electirc bass, just forget about it. If it had a huge cut away like the Michael Manring bass, that would be different.

    By the way, that Koa top on that five string Legacy looks amazing.

    Jason, you are thinking of a 5 string again? I thought that you had decided that your hands were too small.

    who said they were too small for ZON 5s ;)

    I kinda regret selling that Zon Sonus 5 Special.. I MISS It alot :~(

    But I'm glad it got to a nice home and a great player (neptoon).

    I don't know, I always have that era where I want a 5 .. and Zon 5s were the best

    Zon definitely has one of the most playable 5 string necks around, especially if you have small hands. Mine aren't that big either. I love the neck on my Sonus Custom 5.

  14. I dunno. He must be pretty happy with his TBC lightwave twins.

    I'm happy with my TBC MM clone thingy.
