Thanks for any wisdom that can be shared!
Just got this yesterday, looks pretty cool! Check it out!!http://www.tremol-no.com/

They do fixed bridges. In fact, Dennis at Adirondack guitar has a set-neck fixed bridge that looks great. www.adirondackguitar.com (that's where I got my frosted marble) Perhaps you'll get some ideas from that one.

Just saw Phil on a Christian TV show (forget the name) playing acoustic. Never seen or heard him play before. Very nice.

Check out Ken's myspace page, he has some Keaggy clips there. There are also some more to be found over on You_Tube

This one is one of my favorite Keaggy tunes County_Down


EDIT: I should also post this one here with Phil and his white Zion. After all, this is a Zion thread - Crossroads. Thanks, Ken, for the link.

Also, here is another tune with some GREAT playing March_of_the_Clouds.

Great thread...a great friend of mine who happens to be an amazing player, Brett Funk (www.brettfunk.com) plays 3 Classic Maple's and swears by Zion Guitars. As a result, I must own a Classic Maple one day...time to start saving my pennies!

My babies. Zions are the best guitars I've ever played, and the only electrics I play live. Ken Hoover rules!!!

That Primera looks like quite a treat for a LP whore like me. It could be very, very bad for my checkbook.
