    I remember seeing a beautiful Zon 519 for sale at Access Bass about a year ago, but passed on it, because I've never played one before.. Then the guy that bought it sold it shortly thereafter, b/c he wasn't a 5 string guy.. Passed on it again..

    I got a chance to play one at a local shop, and was blown away.. Had to have one.. I put a wanted ad out, and guess which one popped up a few minutes later..

  10. One of the things I love abotu Zons is that Joe does a great job engineering the bass to sound good. I liked hte electronics package on the 519 so I thought about getting one even though I own a Sonus studio 5 already. But ZOn is going to upgrade the electronics in my other SOnus 5 so I should be gassless for a while. I thought this Sonus 5 was a 519 model because of the mid EQ and toggle. But it' a regular 34" scale Sonus

  11. By the way, congratulations on the bass. I wonder if you can tell us what access bass is like ? According to their website, they have 1 bass in stock.Are they a tiny store or ....?

    I remember this bass. I think this is another one that Adrian hand picked. If he hadn't already hooked me up with a Sonus 5 fretted I loved, you'd never have had the chance at that bass. :)

    Congrats! You are going to LOVE that bass!!!!

    I bought it used, so I can't say for sure.. Adrian Garcia, who owns it hangs out around here.. I've email questions and he's been super nice.. That shop is a secondary gig for him I believe..

    There are others as good, but none better than Adrian. Highly recommended, and even if he doesn't have something in stock, he can do customs and other orders as well.

    Isu921, I just have to compliment you on that beautiful bass. I have heard so many good things about the Zon Sonus. Too bad the only Zon I ever played was a poorly set up one in Guitar Center. :rolleyes:
