    Hoping someone may be able to help me out. I am trying to find some pics of basses or guitars with the Z body shape that Warmoth offers, and if it is an original to them or a repro of another makers. This is a small pic from their site, and I appreciate any info...

    I believe there was (is?) a manufacturer by the name of Zeta, that originated that shape. I think that they were one of the first to also use the lightwave systems.

    I believe you are right. Seems they built that shape with a midi guitar called the mirror 6. Thanks!:cool:

    the zeta bass body shape shown above used a piezo pickup. It could also be used as an upright or an electric bass. I'm not familiar with them using lightwave, but it makes sense.
