I'm waiting on a custom Zon, and having another GAS attack. In reading the threads, and coveting the basses of others, I've come up with three mfrs (Sadowsky, Nordstrand, and Benavente) that seem to have risen to the top as far as reputation, craftsmanship, tone, and overall bass 'qwan'. I've gone one step further, and I've zeroed in on three of what I consider the most attractive, inviting finishes. These basses just say 'play me!!!!'. Actually, they say 'sell everything you own to buy me!!!!' Anyway, I know a lot of you have real-world (gigging) experience with one or more of these mfr basses. I'd love to hear your comments, especially if you've owned more than one of these (AG, I know you have!) Thanks. In the meantime, the eBay auction for my dog is almost up, gotta go.
