  • New guitar. What do you guys think?

    I just bought it. Late 1980's Zion Powerglide. They only made a few hundred of these.
    Set Neck, trans Cherry Sunburst on ash, active EMG's, phoenolic fingerboard and original Floyd.

          Great looking guitar. I like the Tele looking top horn, Les Paul looking bottom horn, the Strat style controls, and the EMG's with a Floyd Rose. Transparent finish in that burst looks great....Good score, me likeeee

              That is one very nice looking Tele offshoot. I really like it, but wish the Floyd was resessed(SP?). Great buy.

                    That bust color reminds me of how the steinbergers i have look. The fade and color looks the same.



                    could they be made at the same place?

                    Got any of dem french fried purtaters?

                      I can't be sure. Zion's are made in North Carolina. In the late 80's Ken Hoover was probably sending his guitars out to have the finishes applied (in California, I think). These days it's all done in-house.

                            I don't really dig the shape, but it seems like a quality guitar considering the OFR, EMGs and the build quality in general.

                            Phoenolic fingerboard?
                            Yeah, whatever.
