The Ninety

The Ninety is Zion’s beautiful thinline, semi-hollow body, single cutaway guitar that produces a tone like no other. The Ninety features a figured maple top, including an elegant “f-hole”, over your choice of body wood.

Zion engineers painstakingly designed this instrument with balanced interior chambers and ‘tummy cut’ in the back. Comfortable to play and capable of monster tone from vintage to modern.

The Ninety with newly available “bent top”.  Still chambered, but had to lose the f-hole.  Awesome machine…

The Ninety

“This guitar is a work horse. I’ve used it on stage and in studio for five years. It’s basically a tele on steroids. The hollow body gives it a resonance you just can’t find on a solid body guitar. You can “feel” the notes go through this guitar. You know how first position chords feel on an acoustic? That’s the way this guitar feels, but the sound is much more than acoustic…Chords will ring for days. Very quiet guitar, even cranked.”
