    This Vinny was the one used as the model on the Zon web site until recently.

    Ash Body w/ naturally stained Quilted Maple top.
    Chrome Hardware.
    Custom 19mm string spacing at bridge, nut width is 1.875 inches (stock are 17mm)
    Strung E to C with TI Jazz Rounds
    Truss Rod -YES!
    Custom Composite set neck (newer ones are bolt on)
    Custom Gallery one of a kind Naturally stained, quilted maple top
    Custom Gloss Finish
    High Density, structured gig bag

    Bass is in immaculate condition except for one small ding outlined in the pictures. Although not the lightest bass, it balances beautifully. Relief on the neck is an astounding .004" and the action at the 24th fret is 2/32. This bass almost plays itself. Sheldon Dingwall said he never saw a bass as set up as low as this with absolutely no buzzes. This bass, like many later Zons does have a truss rod.

    Pics at dropbox:

    Also on drop box is a price sheet. This bass new is $4,345. Selling for 2,800 or $3,000 in trade value.

    Want a 5 string bass that has at least 24 frets and minimum of 18mm string spacing. 34" scale only. Should be a premier builder with a solid reputation or a new, upcoming luthier with stunning skills. Always interested in a truly original bass.

    Will consider a trade for lesser value instrument and cash or other cool trade items (no pedals, please)

    Okay. I've been negotiating the outright purchase of another bass. Looking for an outright sale. Will still consider a trade but it needs to be a pretty cool bass
