Happy Sunday, y'all!! I just aquired a lined fretless Sonus in trans charcoal black from a really, REALLY nice guy in New Jersey, who happens to be a new TB member. I haven't got photos yet, but it'll be here on Thursday! I traded my Ken Smith for it, which is an unbelievably KILLING bass...so much so, I was going to keep it and just pay cash for it, but I already have 3 commissioned custom basses on the way, and I'm planning on getting an F Bass from Jay at Blueberry Hill in January. This guy Kyle is getting one HELL of a bass!! It's WICKED punchy in the mids, and is one of those rare basses where you play any note anywhere on the neck, and the note literally jumps off the string....you don't have to fight it AT ALL!! Just a great instrument....I'll miss her! On a side note, if anyone here is ever looking for a bass, there are few men in the business who are as nice, respectful, courteous, communicative and downright honest as Jay Lewis at Blueberryhill Bass....he's the real deal, and a pleasure to work with. He's right there with Brian B, Steve Barr and Adrian Garcia...man, we bass players are a lucky bunch!! Anyway, it's your standard Zon Sonus with a lined phenolic board, Bart PUs and pre, but I'm ordering a 3 band Bart pre with the mid switch...I HAVE to have a 3 band. It's supposed to be minty, and I'm sure it is...Kyle really seems like a straight shooter! I've owned Zons before, but not a Sonus fretless, so I'm hoping it's the bee's knees! I'm not sure of the age, but he said it was made with the phenolic board instead of the pheno-wood, which they make now. Anyone here know when Zon switched over? I also hope the neck is dead flat...they're not adjustable, so I hope it has the right amount of "no-relief" for a fretless. My Benavente is about to be assembled, and my Nordstrand should commence construction after the first of the year...it's going to be a good 2006...I can tell already!!
