I'm casually in the market for a new fanned fret 5-stringer and have been flip-flopping between the Kiesel Vanquish and Zeus for the past several months. One month I'll like the Vanquish better and the next I'll like the Zeus better; then flip-flop again the next month. Obviously, the biggest immediate difference is that the Zeus is headless. I've never played a headless bass before, but it looks pretty sweet. I'm curious on 'playability' impressions of a headless. I assume it would be a little bit lighter and maybe some neck rise.....? I currently play an Ibanez SR 755 with upgraded electronics as my main bass and a stock Ibby SR 505 as my backup/practice. I love the tight 16.5mm string spacing and thin neck on them, but the low B string could be a little better defined and the 'tonal balance' between strings could certainly be improved. Fanned frets are supposed to help with both of those. Ibanez does make a fanned fret SR bass now that looks interesting, but I also do like the idea of specing out a custom bass at this point in my 'career' to be my forever bass. If anyone has any thoughts on the playability, tone, or balance (neck dive/rise & weight) of the Zeus vs Vanquish, I'm all ears!
