NGD....Zion Powerglide

Got this one in today. My apologies to Hoshino inc., but Zion has taken over as my favorite manufacturer. This is the 4th one I've had.....the first non Radicaster. Every single one of them have beed consistantly excellent in every category I can think of.

As you can see this one's a supertele type of deal. Neckthru,OFR,Schaller locking tuners,H/S/S pup configuration. I don't know for sure what the pups are, (Though someone on another forum said the singles were Bardens) but whatever they are they kill!! Not an anemic, crappy sound to be found in any position on the 5 way.

Re: NGD....Zion Powerglide

very nice! there's something incredibly mid-80's Ibanez about that guitar. All it needs is an Ibz headstock and it would be some kind of tele-proline! Sweet as it is tho!

Re: NGD....Zion Powerglide

Thanks man. Funny you should mention the mid 80's vibe. Rumor has it that this one belonged to Frank Hannon of Tesla at one time. Not that it particularly matters to me one way or the other, but I definitely could see that being the case.
