    I just bumped my thread for the zon, should still be in the first 10 or so on this board.

    I would imagine it looks just like this.

    If so, awesome bass and I really agonized over selling it. :cool:

    That appears to be it. I have Big Joe's former bass.

    I'll pass on the G&L but might be interested in the Curbow. Any pics/description/spec?
