    This is a Zon Sonus Special fitted with a U-Retro preamp. This pre really makes the bass come alive. It has a swamp ash body with a nicely figured lacewood top, graphite bolt-on neck and phenowood board, and Bart jazz pickups (very quiet). The way I hear it, the U-Retro has allowed for a greater tonal variation with this bass. The Bart pre's seem darker, but the U can be dark or brighten/open up the tone significantly. Asking $1800 shipped, OBO. NO TRADES please. Comes with hardcase. . . E-mail for pictures

    Folks, this is a KILLER BASS!!!!! If any of you are out there looking for a truly magical fretless, this is definitely it.

    Zon's basses are all awesome, but their fretlesses are totally amazing, and 1800 is a total steal for this bass... MANY hundreds less than typical discount price, and while Erich doesn't specifically say so, I bet it's mint, as well.

    Here's one picture, tho I'm sure it does not do it justice... email Erich for more...

    Bump. . . it's near mint, there's a little nick in the finish above the bridge.

    Thanks Vic :cool:
