Well, I went through a bunch of basses trying to find a 5-string fretted to go along with my Lightwave fretless 5. After mucking around with different scale length, spacings, woods, etc, I think I finally found the one...here she is:<p><a href="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/z4.jpg"><img src="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/z4tn.jpg"></a> <a href="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/z1.jpg"><img src="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/z1tn.jpg"></a> <a href="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/z2.jpg"><img src="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/z2tn.jpg"></a> The neck shape is identical to my other baby:<p><a href="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/zl3.jpg"><img src="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/zl3tn.jpg"></a><a href="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/l1.jpg"><img src="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/zl1tn.jpg"></a><a href="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/zl5.jpg"><img src="http://enzyme.usc.edu/images/zl5tn.jpg"></a><p> I should have guessed that I'd need flamed Koa on both. At any rate, the new fretted bass just kills. Better than any Zon fretted I've played. Needless to say I'm a lot poorer now...oh well...had to sell a Fender Relic strat to pay the difference between the new and my old Zon Custom I'm trying to sell, but what the hell.
