Last week I had a bad case of G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), which resulted in me picking up this new-to-me bass. I’ve wanted a fretless bass ever since I tried one out about 5 years ago. The sound of a fretless just sings to my heart like nothing else, but I haven’t been in a place where I’ve felt like it was the right time to have one, until this deal came up.
Here are some of the vital stats:
- Zon Custom Sonus 5 string fretless bass
- Redwood Top
- Ash Body
- Phenowood Fingerboard, partially-lined (lines only extend under the B string), custom extension (28 frets on the G string side)
- Graphite Neck
- Bartolini Single Coils and an NTMB preamp (9V)
