    With regrets I'm putting my Zon Legacy Elite 5 up for sale.

    - 34" scale
    - Quilted maple top
    - Translucent indigo stain, gloss finish
    - Polyfusion 3 Band Preamp (active treble, mid, bass)
    - Bartolini soap bar pickups
    - Composite neck/phenowood fingerboard/graffite nut
    - Black + Gold Hardware
    - Weight: Approx 9 lbs. 8 oz

    Condition: The top of this bass is in great shape. Some normal wear on the pickup covers, and some string indents at the end of the fingerboard. Headstock has a few small dings. But otherwise looks/feels great.

    The back has an issue, you can see in the pics. There are a few cracks in the finish The cracks haven't gotten any larger in years, but options would be to have them sealed (using epoxy/superglue) then buffed smooth, or the bass could be refinished partially (isolating the back) or completely refinished.

    I'm selling this "as is" for now at $1800.00 AUD

    The cost estimate to refinish would run around $300-$600 depending on refinishing the whole bass vs. trying to isolate the back. The cracks could be sealed and buffed for around $150-$200. Note: All of these are estimates based on my own research from professional luthiers.

    Comes with original Zon Legacy Elite case.

    Message me with any questions and/or for more info. Please also email me if I don't reply to your responses.


    International shipping can be arranged, however cost varies depending on buyer location.

    Thanks for looking. :hyper::hyper::hyper:

    Judging from the pic's it looks like the top on this bass is Bubinga not Quilt Maple, do you know what year this bass was made?

    Hi there~

    The Serial Number for this bass is 4991541, I was told by ZON that this bass was made in 1997, however if you want to you could confirm by emailing ZON.

    Thanks :D

    That's not bubinga.
    It's a Claro Walnut top. Asked Joe Zon, my Legacy has the same identical top :)
