    Never heard of them... :meh:

    Definitely a Cirrus clone, though...

    I worry about auctions that throw in all kinds of brand names in the title, then it turns out to be a brand no one's ever heard of. Makes me think less of the seller.

    That's not to say this is a good instrument or not, but you'd almost think it wasn't a musician selling it, know what I mean?

    Check out his two other auctions. Same MO, and one is for a Wishbass! :eek:

    Ick, dude. Ick.

    I'm in agreement with Willplay4food; that's just not cool to put names like that in there just to get people to bid for something they've never heard of. Lame. Especially when it looks like a cheap Cirrus knockoff.

    Might be a product from the new Vietnam factory, where Peavey produces their latest inexpensive yet carved Grinds.. Looks somehow similar.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I think you may be right on that one. Compare the headstocks, bodies and carving on the back where the neck meets the body.

    Not quite as offset in shape as the Grind, but mighty close.

    They put "Zon Elrick Fender" in the title so when people search for Zon, Elrick, or Fender, this ad pops up.

    Yah.. it really annoys me when people put stuff like "not spector, warwick, fender" just o get search results. Hello people.. some one isn't going to bid on your knockoff if they are looking for an Elrick.. geez..
    That is just TOO similar to the Cirrus. The slightly mutated horns make it nasty though.

    "Babilon 5"...is that supposed to be a joke? Or are they just exploiting cheap Minbari labor?
