    Nice fretless, AJ! Where'd it end up? One thing that surprised me quite a bit about my Zon 6 is that when I saw it, I though it was going to weigh a ton. It doesn't at all- probably is about 9.5lbs or under. The graphite isn't neck heavy either, even with that big headstock, which was something I worried about before purchasing. It's not as neck-light as my six-string Elrick was with it's relatively small headstock, but there's no dive to it or anything.

    You're lucky. My 5er weighs in @ 12lbs! Strangely, the fretless 5 weighs only 9lbs. :confused:

    Your answer is simple man- each of your frets must weigh 2 oz. ;)

    I still own it. It's great. I really like the 16.5mm spacing on a 6-stringer. That's why I ordered the Legacy. And, yes, it is very light.

    Hey Marcus, how does it feel ripping it up on the Legacy? Everything you imagined?

    Sweet looking bass. I got to get me one of those!:D

    Does the legacy series sound different from the Sonus series?

    Carbon fiber necks. They are nice and clear and "clean". That's how I describe it.
