To those who have dealt with Zon, I'm tossing around this idea. My most favoritest bass tone ever was a fretless Zon Sonus ash body. It had lightwave pickups instead of the usual barts. I've never spoken with Joe but hear he is quite busy so if you guys know the answers to my questions I figure that'd be great. Anyways, here's a few questions on Zon: 1) What is the turnaround time roughly on a custom ordered Zon? 2) Is Joe open to still doing the lightwave pickups instead of the typical Barts? 3) What other special things have been done to the hyperbass from other basses besides the extended fretboard? Is something else done special for the neck to make it more stable? I assume there's more i just can't find that info of what it is. 4) I read somewhere that he doesn't do the bridge option for changing pitch like on Michael's bass. Is this still true? If it is, the only way to alter the pitch on the hyperbass is thru the tuning peg thingies (hipshot extenders)?
