    Cannot decide. Any opinions? I own a zon vb4 and a fretless warwick. Love them both, but the vb4 is strung up with piccolo strings. I play solo bass, and I am looking for something in their price range, for now. Influences are Manring, Zander, Wooten. Thanks guys.

    I have a Sonus 4/2 and an older ('97) Corvette. Love them both but if keeping just one, it would be the Zon. They fit completely different against and across the body, ergonomics alone might help your decision.

    I would agree with the comfort factor. Zon's can often be extremely light, and they balance well. The handful of Warwicks that I have played have had a unique sound, but they had thick necks and were very tough for me to play comfortably. I'm a smaller guy, so maybe that wouldn't be as much of an issue for you, but my vote would be for the Zon.
