Played a Zon Standard 4 string import bass yesterday. Man, it sounded GREAT?? So clear from the lowest notes to the highest. Very nice electronics. Here is the Zon link: http://zonguitars.com/zonguitars/imports/ I played the 4 string on the right. Is it the electronics? Having tried many of the high end pickups, I have not tried SD. Is it the maple body? Not trying to start the tonewood battle. I know, totally subjective etc etc. If anybody has any comments, specifically SD electronics or maple body effects it would be appreciated. Anyway, if this had been fretless [ they won't make import fretless basses ] I would have bought it. Here are some quotes from a thread Scubduba started.
