    I have an all black Sonus Custom (took me a while to get used to it, but everything's cool, we're good friends now. :)) and am gassing for another. However I'm wondering, if I were to order one, would they put in pickups/preamps that are not the regular ones they normally use on their stock models basses? I'm thinking of a Sonus with 2x Nordstrand MM4.2 pups (the Stringray ones) and the AC Guitars filter pre.

    Also would love to have a Macassar (sp?) Ebony top, but they don't seem to list it as an option their website; However I know some people here have ordered one-off Zons (like the beautiful spalted Sonus Hyperbass that pops up here ever so often - sorry I can't remember the owners name at the moment).

    So I'm guessing they would probably do it, but it would be considered a special order, which means quite a significant raise in price. Am I right in thinking so?

    It has been done:


    I wouldn't limit yourself to the options on Zon's website. They're in the business of making basses, not web development... if you catch my drift.

    P.s the one-off (actually I think there are a few) you mentioned is mine :D
