Glad to see another one of our local builders getting props on TGP. I've never owned a Zion, but my cousin's son in Lenoir, NC is crazy about them and has owned three or four. He has a bunch of pics of himself with Ken and with Phil. Given my love for Strat-style guitars, it's odd that I never tried one. Probably the same reason I didn't drive to Raleigh last month to play that Fuchs ODS 30 combo at IDS.
