    Time to sell my Zon. I bought it in 1998. Plays amazing and the action is perfect due to the composite neck. Sucker never goes out of tune. This model has no truss rod. The body is swamp ash with bubinga top. The pickups are ZB2 active system by Bartolini. Bartolinis J pickups give you a lot of flexibility with great tone. It provides an awesome tight jaco sound to a cool hollow P tone. The knobs are Master volume, pickup blend and stacked bass/treble control.

    Here are the exact specs of the bass,

    As you can tell by the photos I've kept incredible care of the bass. There are a few minor nicks on the edge of the bass and headstock but the paint didn't chip away nor does it detract from the beauty.

    I'm including a custom molded bass case from Zon. It Fits like a Glove!

    I've included a ton of photos from multiple angels
    I'm asking $1750 shipped in CONUS, PayPal.

    Thanks for checking out the ad!

    Thanks for the interest but I will only ship in continental US. Sorry.
     
  14. It's not a problem. I've got a person in the U.S. who helps me to buy basses if a seller doesn't send internationally.

    What an amazing looking bass but I can't get past the no truss rod. How are you supposed to customize the relief? I like my basses with very little relief.
