    This incredible bass was meant to be 2009 Winter NAMM bass but didn't make the show. I was lucky enough with timing to be the first human outside the shop to play it. It's never been gigged and has been well-maintained... MINT condition.

    If you've played ZON fretless basses before you know how much mwah and tone exudes from these fine instruments. Now is your time to save time and $$$ on this one of a kind instrument.

    Wait time would be 6-8 months and it would cost you at least $5,015 (with gig bag) or $5,310 (with h/s case) - I'm offering either in this deal.

    This bass was originally strung B-G, but I changed it to E-C without any alterations to the nut or bridge, except for intonation.

    My first inclination is to keep it, as I don't have to sell it, however it's not getting any playing time (my other TJ is), and I'd love to see this go to a good home. I would consider trades for a "vintage" style (60's) 4-string jazz such as Sadowsky, Alleva-Coppolo, Valenti, -or- an F Bass BN4/BN5 etc. plus cash based on the value of the trade.

    For those interested in a cash-only deal, I'd have to say $3,600 with the HSC or gig bag, shipped anywhere in the US.

    (it's the one on the right - the fretted is not for sale)

    Bump for a great guy and an incredible bass. If I had the right trade, or the cash, she'd be mine!

    Last chance before I either trade it in or convert it to a fretted bass. Make me an offer.
