    Anyone out there ever play a Zon Vinny? I hear Mr. Manring plays one...just wondering how they work for us mortals?

    The compact headless form appeals to me for travel.

    Reco's on other headless instruments?

    I loved my Vinny VB4... I should have bought a 5-string. A little 'woodier' than other basses. Great neck, pickups (custom Barts), and preamp. Great for travel too. I may have to pick another one up someday.

    They're great basses, but to me, I preferred the tone of the Sonus, Custom, and Special better. FDor the size and portability aspect though, they're tough to pass up especially if you do lots of traveling in airplanes.
