    Finally after all the hell through UPS and taking about an hour and a half after, I have my bass in my hands. I eagerly opened the box and when I saw the bass, I was stunned. The finish is perfect.. all mint condition. Cannot believe this. I cannot believe I got this bass for $1800 used. I had to plug it in and try.. The bass needs a setup. The E string's bridge saddle is a little lower than the rest of the saddles, the bridge pickup needs to be lowered etc.. but after thats set, it will be ready to go! I love this thing! My hand just plays by itself. Its a weird but an awesome feeling!! Nino, you need to try this bass out!! Here are some specs that I know off hand

    Bass: Zon Legacy Elite IV Built on December 2001
    Body: Mahogany
    Neck: Graphite Phenowood Fingerboard
    Top: AAAAA Quilt Maple
    Electronics: Bartolini NTMB 3-Band Preamp
    Pickups: Custom Bartolini Soaps made for Zon's specs
    Bridge: Zon Custom Bridge

    I love this bass! When I solo the neck pickup, I hear a distinct Stingray sound to it! This thing will definitely cut through anything. Legacies usually come with Zon Polyfusion 2band preamp, but this one came with Bartolini NTMB 3band. I love the sound of this! I can't wait to record this baby.

    The neck is one of the best i have played! The neck is a little thicker than the Sonus Special 5 I sold to neptoon.. but the neck feels exactly the same and its fast as hell! :)

    I bought this bass off Matt Springer (Guitbass here on TB). Thanks for the great bass and thank you for spending all of your time and patience with dealing with a happy customer here at TB!
