    Man o man, i havent ever been able to play a zon before because there never at my local guitar center, but today was the day. I looked over and i saw a 5 string sonus just sitting there. I was skeptical because i usually hate all 5'ers but man the b was tight and really nice sounding. The neck was also really nice and not to thick for my small hands. Now to start saving! :p

    I just played my first Zon a few weeks ago at the local Guitar Center... man that was nice. I definitely plan on buying a high-end bass in the next few months, and Zon just made the list.

    I love Zons, but they do have one strange characteristic; To MY ears, there isn't much difference when panning the pickups, and moving your plucking hand up and down doesnt seem to produce as much difference as wood necked basses.
