    Just checked it and it is finally done. Looks like the Tribute and Tribute Pro line has been re-named the Mosaic and Mosaic Pro. The problem is that the description looks like a big error since the necks are wood on those basses and the description is like that of a Legacy neck. But the site looks good. Check it out.

    It's like night and day compared to the old site. Good Job. I did however find a broken link, but I'm sure that'll be cleared up.

    Yea. At least it's up. The corrections will probably follow soon. He might not even be aware of some of them. Guess we could let him know too. But the site is 100x better than it was. Looks real good.
    BTW A. J. that Vinny looks terrific.

    Very nice looking top, not gaudy or too busy; just right in my opinion.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Cool! It's nice to finally get some information about all of the models introduced since 2000. The new site is very nice and informative.

    It's definitley a Flamed Myrtle top. That bass had just been completed when I was at the shop to see Joe. My jaw dropped when I saw it. It's actually way more impressive in person. It's so highly flamed that it looks like flowing water in the sunlight...very stunning!

    I love the new website by the way, although I would recommend that Joe post more pics in the gallery. He should also post pics of the wood tops that he has available. He has some pretty amazing Myrtle, Spalted Maple, and Redwood on hand.

    i do enjoy that "build your zon". the only downside is it you want some specific things done to your zon. but i suppose thast ok when you call to order....
     
  13. It's about time - I boughft a Zon in 1995 and their web page was essenitially unchanged since then.

    Yea, they got a number of things wrong. Kind of like some stuff in the wrong place Joe may not even realize it. The BIG mistake is the Mosaic (Tribute) line. It tells you how it has a rock maple neck and 3 piece neck on the Pro with graphite-reinforcement, but then the actual page for it says its a set-in composite neck....All wrong. Guess they're gonna have to proof-read the site.

    If you click on the map under "Dealers", they don't list any cities for the dealers if there are any. They stop at the street addresses.
     
  16. Too busy making great guitars to set up a good web-site, but I am sure the kinks will be removed eventually. I am loving my Zon, such a wonderfully fast neck.

    Yep. That's a Sonus with the optional flamed maple top. The Special comes stock with a bubinga top, and has totally different pickup placement.

    Oh my god! The top on the front page is incredible...it's the kind of thing you'd see on a Ritter.
