The Classic

“I looked at a several builders (…, …) before I picked Zion. Why? The way they treated me on the phone and over e-mail – I wasn’t “just another customer”. They cared and were willing to take the time with me to make sure that I got what I wanted. When the guitar shipped, Ken started calling me 2 or 3 days before the guitar got to me just to make sure that I was happy. I’m sold. I’ll buy a Zion from now on. I’m already thinking about getting them to build me a Tele (Sorry … ). TALK TO THEM! YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED.”
