    Up for sale is a dead mint Zon Sonus Custom 5 with a highly Flamed Redwood top. I can't stress more how new the condition of this bass is. The bass has the typical Zon Sonus Custom features like an Ash body, 34' scale 24 fret graphite neck, Bart soapbars, and a Zon ZP-2D 3-band preamp. I'm looking to get $1700 for this bass.

    Pics can be seen here:http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/mgmir...one=http://photos.sbc.yahoo.com/ph//my_photos.

    I may consider trades so run them by me. I'm mainly looking at a cash deal, but if the right high-end 5 comes along, I may be inclined to deal. I will also add cash for the right bass.

    Price is $1700, and I will include shipping for TBers.

    Gene, you are a crazy man. All those great looking basses you've had. I wish I had gotten that Zebra Acacia from you. Nice Zon. One up./\

    Dan,
    It's a certified sickness, but I can't help it, I'm afflicted by GAS and just can't help myself!
    I to wish you got that Zebra Acacia because that was one sick bass! I'm not sure where it went either. I traded it, and like a week later, it was sold. I wish I knew where it went. I'm starting to miss not having an Acacia.

    It's fun, but I wish I could just keep this gigantic collection so I would never have to part with any of my gear. Seperating myself from my gear is a bad thing. It's almost like going through depression, but receiving new basses takes you right out of that hole!

    Man, I'm really trying to figure out how to take this one off of your hands. It's a bit more than I have in the bank (big surprise!) but I could offer some items in trade plus cash! Eden D410, Eden D210XLT, Epiphone El Capitan 5, BB1200S (burgundy)? Any interest?

    Bump for a real pretty Sonus!

    The bass is all but sold.

    Mike-
