One fretted, one fretless, both awesome.
Click the pic for bigger.
unable to post a pic, but i have two: a '96 legacy standard six with a one piece curly maple body in trans amber. and a '98 sonus custom six fretless w/lines with a quilted maple top in trans carribean blue. both super basses in every way. jeff
man i should've never made this post, now i have huge zon envy.
cant wait for my tax return
i think i'm going to go with a 4/2 all black sonus w/ mid control and black hardware.
edit: oh and pics of something like this would be wonderful, i've been searching for awhile now. seems people really like the quilted maple(yeech)
what's the top on the 2nd one vics?
Here is my Sonus Custom fretless fiver.
the spalt one may be for sale soon:
too bad it's(spalt) a fretless, that's a nice top
too bad you don't get zon fretlai.
i'm in the process of making my own fretlai - it's ugly as all hell. and a rogue, and my first bass.
i spraypainted it pink, and defretted - now i just need to install new pups/pots
It's a really great piece of Bubinga. It's almost metallic/shiny under bright light like it's almost made out of foil or something. Very cool. In case yer curious, the first one (fretted) is a Redwood top. The figuring is not super tight, but I think it's still one of the best looking figured tops out there.
Those are two beautiful instruments right there!
I'm still on the fence in regards to converting this to a fretless or trading it for one.
Hey Vics, have you had anyone ask you to leave your Sonus Special Fretless home?
I've worked with 3 different guitarists that have requested I not use mine...I think it threatens them, it's TOO present sounding...
Damn, that bass sounds good!
Nope. Never. In fact, quite the opposite. But first, hey Gard, wassup! .
Anyway, I play in mix classic/modern rock cover band... standard mix of stuff that sells... you know. Anyway, without telling anyone, when I first got the bass, I played a gig with it without telling anyone. I even slapped on it some (not that I'm any good at that, but I get away with what little slapping I can do). Here's the funny part... nobody noticed, but I got the usual complements on my tone at the end of the night!
NOTE: Hey, spend enough money on yer rig and you develop a tone rep... especially with the sound guys... no matter how much you suck as a player.
Hmmm, don't tell me... these are the same guys who ask as in their loudest voice at the counter "where are the XXL rubbers, please?", right?
You are right about that Zon presence tho! Damn punchy. Prolly why I "got away with it".
check this out.. If I wasnt about to put a DP on a custom 6er I'd be all over this one
my spalt 519 just went up.
Here's a body shot of mine.
one of the coolest looking tops ive ever seen
