Wow - Been thinking of picking up a Z1 when one came along. This thing looks gorgeous. Paul - you're in LA area aren't you? I'm in N San Diego County, and if so, I would like to drive up to have a look before springing if that would be possible. I actually believe we spoke on the phone several times about 3 years ago when I bought my first DW, an AB-II. Sheldon and crew referred you to me. You were very helpful. I absolutely love my AB-II, barely play anything else any more, so moving up to a Z just seems like my destiny. Any feedback on how this Z1 would compare to my stock AB-II with FD-3's? Can you comment on the pickups and electronics you have on it?

I would LOVE to see those basses, but all the links seem broken. I can't view them anyway (tried IE and Firefox). Not so much a big deal I guess, I couldn't afford any of them. Too bad you have to get rid of your basses like that. I hope things go well with you.

Paul's Z1-5 is one of the hottest basses I've seen for a while, highly recommended! Was talking to him a little while ago about the pickups and they sound fantastic, custom made by Kevin Bellar, the lead guy behind the Seymour Duncan Basslines range of pickups. (Not to say they are just like the common stock, they were custom-made to Paul's specs, very hi-fi and responsive, etc.) Would love to buy the Z1 myself, but I just bought a new ABII5. DOH! And I'd certainly love another pre-Gib Tobias Sig 5, but at the price they are worth, I think one will have to do. :) Cheers, EG

Yes, that is one hot bass. The only reason I want to try it before I buy are the few people here on the forum who found the Z sound wasn't to their liking.

Just go to [url:3csji2ci]http://entertainment.webshots.com[/url:3csji2ci] and search for Paul Slagle, it looks like most of these bases are up there.

I am very interested in his Z2, but it looks like finances will hold me down to a C2 to fill my MM void Whoever picks it up is one lucky dude!

Well I'm happy to report that the Z1 has a proud new owner. Thanks Paul for letting this bass go to a new home and your wonderful hospitality while I was there. I was treated to a tour of some of Paul's collector-quality basses and guitars when I travelled to LA to pick up the bass. It was a wonderful way to do a little comparison shopping. I was able to see how well the Z1 held up next to top-notch Tobias and other basses. The whole experience left me really appreciating the Z1 bass. For me, there was no other bass in that collection that sounded better expect for his vintage Prima Voodoo 6-string that was just amazing. Plus Paul has a wealth of interesting stories that are very entertaining. And by the way, Paul - I ended up at Melody's mexican restaurant - excellent recommendation! :wink:
