The Mosaic BB5 is a 35"-scale bass that features an ash body, a three-piece, bolt-on maple neck with maple fingerboard, and Zon's new flat finish. Equipped with Seymour Duncan Jazz Bass-style pickups and passive electronics, the Mosaic is voiced for a classic Jazz Bass tone. Enclosed mini tuners and Zon's 19mm brass bridge complete the appointments.
According to endorsee Baron Browne, ". . .this instrument is the closest to my beloved Fender Jazz that I've played. It is my Fender and more. With both volume controls up to full, the bass is very punchy, allowing one to get a Motown-y tone plucking near the neck or a Tower of Power-bottom-yet-percussive sound closer to the bridge. Those who are fond of a more Pastorius-bridge-pickup tone while turning back the front pickup will be pleased to find a nice low-mid slicing warmth without sounding too nasal. This bass has an active presence to it without having active electronics in it."
Mosaic BB5 specifications include a Swamp ash body; a 3-piece quartersawn maple, bolt-on design, flat oil finished necked; a maple fingerboard with side and face dot markers; Two Seymour Duncan Custom Shop single-coil pickups designed exclusively for Zon; passive electronics with neck pickup volume, bridge pickup volume, and master tone control and much more.
