    I dont know much about how either play, i have a jazz myself but nothing as nice as that, but if i had to choose it would be the natural jazz, trade it, as long as the monetary value for each is near equal

    I'd say you're even on the swap. The Altelier's have a rep for being a little heavy, but it looks like you wouldn't have a problem with that. If you've got two Zon's I'd do it.
  4. +1 on the good to go. Then again I do have a strong jazz bass bias....but if you have two Zons and one's preferrable, I'd say go for it.

    What he said. I dunno about actual value, but the jazz is way cooler, man.

    I would do it in a second, but then what would you play to match your Steelers jersey? Kidding.
    See if they will allow you a 48 hour approval, most stores involving higher end trades will. Planetbass did with my Fodera Imperial.

    I looks like a good trade. If you don't play the other and already have one that's the same, I do not see any harm in it.

    Good trade, but IMHO, only 'cause you still have a Zon afterwards. TB'er Gruuv just got one of these and LOVES it. These are one of the best values out there for a high end 70's style J.

    dude where dude all ur hair go?

    i'd make the trade aswell, and i'm the trade king.

  15. It's not unusual or even bad for someone to get the better end of a trade. That being said, the Zon may be worth a little more due to the graphite neck. However, if I wanted the other one more, I'd do the trade.

    I traded my Sonus Custom in on a Metro a little over a year ago and although I liked the Sonus much I really haven't missed it. I'd say Go Man!

    I would go for the trade if I were you. If you don't consider the Zon to be a really important part of your arsenal, then I'd def go for the different tone of a Jazz. I dont know how those Jazz's sound, but whave have you got to lose? Have you played the other one yet?
