The Fifty

Zion introduced The Fifty in 1996 and it has become a favorite for many of our players.  The refined styling and contoured body (complete with ‘tummy cut’ and shoulder contour) makes this guitar comfortable to play even in extended gigs.

Your choice of woods, pickups, hardware, and finish complete your Fifty.  An extremely versatile instrument that is very comfortable with 2 Humbuckers and tremolo or a set of vintage t-style pickups and t-style bridge.

 

Once you plug in and start playin’, you won’t be able to stop…

The Fifty

“I own 3 (similar guitars) and have played dozens in my search for the “one.” This guitar is light and very resonant… it rings like and acoustic when strummed… Comparing this to a production line (Brand Name) is not fair, the pickups are better, the finish is better, the wood is better and the neck is MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH better…

The finish is so flawless, its scary. The neck fits very tight, and the neck finish is silky smooth. The 3 way switch is tight and the pots are very smooth. The fret work on the neck is as good as I have ever seen. I would put this up against … anyone. I am a picky guitar-aholic, and this one was made “Right.”
