Beautiful! Jay Turser, or what?
That's the one, man. Get that one and you'll never look for another fretless 5 again. There are several great fretless basses out there, some as good as the the Zon, but none better.
Yeah, Munji, Jay is making some mighty fine basses these days, huh?
OK, I thought that at first I would let the pictures speak for themselves, but here is the rundown:
Zon Sonus Custom, Bart soapbars(humbuckers), ZP-2D preamp, active bass & treble, piezo bridge pickup with blend control, 34" scale/24 'fret' composite(duh!) neck, burled redwood top, adjustable string spacing bridge, straplocks, phenowood fingerboard with redwood lines(hey, I need a roadmap, OK?), Zon gigbag, list new over $3700(now over $4000, I just checked the website), flawless condition, less than 6 months old, I can get it for around $2K including 2 day shipping.
I don't like some composite basses, but I have never played a Zon that I didn't like.
Beautiful!!! I bet it sounds as good as it looks. Does it have coil tap? or are the soaps single coil?
ROCKBOBMEL, it has humbuckers, but they are not currently tapped.
There's something to think about down the road.
I'm sure Jay Tursers have feelings too ya know.
You basically have the "Legacy" electronics package plus the piezo bridge in the Sonus body style. You have so many sounds available as is (especially a killer bridge solo'd sound) that I'm not sure what you'd gain with a coil tap.
Of course I know that you would have to play it to tell me, Brad, but you think that this one would probably be a keeper, eh?
More sounds? Isn't that better? Like having more frets or an amp that goes to 11?
Also, I've found that I like mine with Nickel strings, not SS. I didn't feel the need to EQ with Nickel. I'd be surprised if that bass didn't sound excellent, Zons seem to be pretty consistent in their quality and Customs are my favorite Sonus.
Hummmmm... that bass looks very familiar...
As a matter of fact, that carpet looks very familiar!!!
Hey, Jeff, I've seen you on the newsgroups but didn't realize that you were a member here.
So that bass looks kinda familiar, huh?
See you tomorrow!
That's one of the best looking mid end Jay Turser P bass copies I've ever seen.
I want a Jay Turser too! How can you resist a bass like that one when it is as cheap as it is?
What is that body embel, koa top over ash w/ high gloss? Just trying to see if my knowledge on wood has gotten anywhere...
Burled redwood over swamp ash.
