    while the zon is an excellent bass if you like its
    kind of sound - the body shape doesn't do much for
    me. anyone else have that opinion? just curious.

    If you're talking about the Legacy series, then I think it's a rather unique but still functional and balanced shape without being too "out there".

    Admittedly, the Sonus is a bit more generic (sorry Joe) but is wears very well for me, and it sorta grows on ya.

    i was thinking legacy - it seems a little
    80's metal-ish to me.

    did you guys see that horrible movie
    'air heads' about the band? the bass player
    aspires to own a zon in that film and somehow
    its stuck with me.

    hee-haw.

    Is this the movie where the guitar player wanted a Puar Reed Smith with the dragon inlay?
    It also stuck me!

    For the legacy, I like them, better than the Sonus (I mean the body shape. Never tried either one).

    Captain...he didn't "aspire" to own a Zon...that's incorrect syntax for your intended meaning.

    I love both the Legacy and the Sonus, and I'd be proud to own either...or both! Hopefully someday, I will!

    I think I know both what my intended meaning
    and the definition of 'aspire' are.

    I'm not sure I follow you with "C-Eye"
     
  9. I really like the look of the Legacy, especially dig the Hyperbass. And plan on purchasing one in the near future.
    I dont really recall any 80s metal players using them..??

    I like the Sonuses that come in the solid finishes, eg. shoreline gold. Those look tasty. The wood ones IMO look odd; the wood grain doesn't really match the futuristic shape.

    As for the Legacies...no comment.
