    As the title says. It's in excellent condition; I can't find any blemishes. I'm going to downgrade to a lesser instrument ... because life. These basses are super ergonomic; it feels like playing a short scale. The higher notes just sing on this bass unlike any other I've played. Buttery mids and thumping lows: the Bartolini electronics made especially for Zon can do it all. Some people report waiting years for a new build, so why not save time and money and snag mine instead? 3000USD includes shipping/insurance to Canada/CONUS. Original padded Zon gig bag (also in excellent condition) and Fender strap included.

    Behold the original ad--SOLD - Zon Vinny VB5 - $3200 Shipped CONUS--for specs'n'stuff. It's a beauty for sure, and you don't see the fivers very often.

    That looks like the same hideous bedspread from your other bass thread. Does it hypnotize potential buyers? :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:

    Hypnotize, repel ... depends on the buyer!

    Don't let the bedspread repel you ... top-notch TBer and a pleasure to deal with. GLWTS, DM

    (In best Dewey Cox voice) "You don't want any of this bedspread!" "I think I DO want to try the bedspread..."
    Gorgeous Zon! It should sell quickly, and this is a good price for a Zon Vinny!

    Is this bedspread not human? Does it not bleed?

    I think the ugliness of the bedspread brings into sharp relief the beauty of Zon's work, but there's a reason--many reasons--I'm not in marketing.

    For anyone interested, new zons take forever to build. The price is already good, but make sure to factor in the fact that if you ordered this new you’d likely have to wait 2/3 years.
