I've been perusing all things Lightwave and I emailed Zon. Zon no longer carries the once heralded Sonus Lightwave. I believe that the Zon Sonus Lightwave did not have the second, supposedly improved, version of the Lightwave system, but the reviews that I read of the instrument were actually quite good. I was also interested in the new Lightwave basses that came out in July 2004. They were, by all accounts, much better than the first prototypes that were sold on ebay. (Which, although not amazing instruments, were fantastic deals.) The lightwave site hasn't been updated in quite some time, and I can't seem to contact anyone at Lightwave. Any news on why zon stopped offering the lightwave? Any news on lightwave basses or lightwave systems? Any news on other luthiers using lightwaves? I've seen a few custom basses with lightwave on talkbass, e.g. a nice JAF, but no major luthiers.
