    Same ol' pic I've been using since
    bass + college = no camera.
    Hopefully someone will give this a good home...before I change my mind. :)

    hey DarkMazda, what is that one on the right? Looks like a Zon, but the headstock is different and you didn't describe it..... It an older model?
     
  8. Hey guys, how are those Lightwave fretlesses?
     
  9. I really like mine. Great sustain and a very expressive fretless tone. Beautiful high register. Cuts thru very well. If you're considering a fretless, I would advise checking them out.

    Sonus Custom fretless, piezo bridge, Polyfusion preamp, redwood burl top, swamp ash back, phenowood board with redwood 'stealth' lines.

    its my Salas Custom IV. I asked Tim Salas if he could build me a bass with a Legacy body (since i had no $ for a Legacy or any Zon).. and thats the outcome

    This may be a silly question, but with the Lightwaves, where do you rest your thumb?

    In my case, on the various strings or not at all.

    Just curious, who's owned a Zon the longest?
