Zion Guitars

I have had this Zion forever and I just realize that I know nothing about the body wood, year made or what the graphic is called.



I bought it used about fifteen years ago. The serial number stamped on the back of the headstock is 1640, the neck plate is blank and the fretboard looks to be ebony eventhough I think I read that Zion did use a composite material for an ebony looking fretboard. I know that they are USA made (NC I think) and are a boutique type of quitar.
Anyother information would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Zion Guitars

When I had a Zion question, I asked Ken Hoover directly over on the gear page.

Exactly this

I think it's a "yellow picasso" although the only ones of the picasso series I've ever seen had the same two tone fade across teh body and headstock, but the graphics were a little more "abstract" and relied on similarly shaded cones, spheres and similar, so I could be VERY wrong!

Re: Zion Guitars

I may be wrong but I think that the finish may be "Ribbon"? I heard it once and I thought "yeah, I guess that looks like a ribbon...?"

Joined the Gear Page and posted on a long running Zion thread. Saw that Ken Hoover replied many times on that thread, well up until May.

Re: Zion Guitars

I think I saw Uberthrall's name posted serveral times in that long running Zion thread
OK, so it is from a Picasso series. That is why I saw a couple of variations with the same color scheme?
