  1. Sweet! The Zia is my favorite JP shape these days, and the matching quilt/burl is gonna be very striking.

    I've very glad to build this bass for you my friend.

  5. Thank you JP!

    I know this bass is going to be a killer fretless. I spend almost an hour per day staring at this quilt'n'burl extravaganza!!!

    here's another Zia 5...
    my first bass with "some" gold hardware
    :D (RMC only 33" hollowbody setneck Zia)


  15. :eek:

    Zia shape is awesome on 5ers.
    Oil Oil!!! You can't go to holidays before oiling these basses...:D
    I didn't notice that you use Neutrik Locks for the jacks. Is that new???

  16. I'm getting visions of a Zia 5 with wenge/ebony neck and buckeye top (with matching headstock) over mahogany or korina. Is that wrong?


  17. It looks like you have a very hard G.A.S attack...

    You need to be cured!!

    PS: Sweet symptoms: Zia 5 Buckeye burl and wenge/ebony neck...:hyper:
