I think I have the world's most enabling wife, which is a great thing! I picked up three of these on are way for our Honeymoon a couple weeks ago which ended up taking a lot more time than she signed up for. She never once complained!! We met some really great people in our guitar excursion including a forum member and another fellow I have seen on Jemsite. Luckily I had a friend who I dropped off the guitars to in Whitby so they didn't sit in the airport parking lot freezing cold. She just brought them brought them back to me... super nice. The 3120 was waiting for me when I got home today... thanks sorbz62. Anyways, as you can see I have an unhealthy relationships with floating trems...

Ohh yes I have wanted one for a while now, and oddly enough it was this very guitar that sparked my interest in acquiring one! It is loaded with Bill Lawrence pups, a Schaller trem, body is mahogany with a very nice 3D maple quilt cap, and the neck is maple with an ebony board with abalone inlays. It is a joy to play... it plays like a CS Fender only better to me. It was owned by a forum member here (xbolt) and I saw that he was selling off a number of his guitars on another site back in December. So long story short, he and I had been corresponding by email for almost three months and then I finally got it last week. It is a keeper for sure and wont be going anywhere.

I like *looking* at all the guitars in this photo, but those trems tell me I wouldn't pick any of them up.

I'm currently trying to convince my lovely wife to buy me a Twin. So far not good haha.

Which one do you reach for first?

Haha ya they can be a hassle to set up and change strings but once you get the hang of it, it's very easy to do. I only have one non-floating bridge guitar right now and seem to gravitate towards them. Although I would like an AVRI tele.
Keep on trying I'm sure she will surprise you.
The Zion by far... main reason being it is different than a lot of my other guitars. Second would be the 770 DX violet metallic is also nice because of the maple board.

Great guitars, great story, great wife! For my wife, as long as it's 'pretty', it get very little trouble. So far quilt-top Ernie Ball EVH, gold & silver sparkle amps, and gold hardware all qualify!

I've always wanted an EVH MM, I should have bought the one that was for sale here a couple weeks back. Ya she is cool with things, we go on a lot of guitar expeditions. But I am having trouble convincing her to allow me to purchase more things at the Elmira guitar show. I have to sell other guitars before bringing new ones into the house...

Hi there. New here. I have that exact style of Zion. I was actually trying to sell it at 12th Fret in Toronto from aug 2017 to july 2018, but apparently no one was interested. So it's back home with me now. But it's nice to see that someone else knows the brand and appreciates the quality.

Yes they are great guitars, and part of the allure for me is they aren't what everyone else is playing. The fit and finish is top notch and the neck is damn near perfect. I never saw the Zion on the Twelfth Fret website or else I may have considered buying it. I'm looking at another one from the states but can't decide if I want that or another jp6 or jp7.
