Well I finally found the means to get my first Zon and she's a beauty. If you've been to the Bass NW site recenty then you've already seen the bass. I'll post a photo anyway since I snapped a few. It's a really cool looking myrtle top. Mytle is usually kinda swirly but this is real straight almost like zebrawood. It reminds me of a tigereye ring that I had many years ago. It's in immaculate condition for a 7 year old bass. A bit on the heavy side but not bad. When I tested it out I wasn't impressed with the piezo (how do you pronounce "piezo, anyway?). But through my gear at home it sounded real nice when it is mixed. The magnetic pups sound great with no issues at all. I'll have to read through the book to figure out how to work the adjustments on the preamp. If anyone has tips on setting the midrange and high pots that would be appreciated. The bass plays like butter and the 34" scale suits me to a "T". The B string sounds and feels solid. The setup seems fine for me and there isn't a string buzz that I can find at any of the 24 frets. I really like the look of the phenowood and I just work better with a dark board than I do with maple. I'm a happy camper here. Evan and Aaron, at BassNW, treated me real well yesterday. The place wasn't that busy so that was nice. Just a real positive experience. I truely believe that Joe builds some very nice basses and I've wanted a Zon Custom for several years now. It's just not been the time until now.
