Unique to the Zenith bass is it's construction. A cross between a solid-body and a semi-hollow bass, the body is computer-routed to create acoustic chambers. The top is laminated Flame Maple with tortoise bound "F" holes. The 5-piece, satin finish neck features a combination of Hard Maple and Walnut. It's attached to the body with a deep-set, 5-bolt design that holds it solidly in place and adds to it's deep, rich tone.

Another unique feature of this bass is the bridge. Drawing inspiration from Epiphone's upright bass models of the 1940's and 1950's, it features a solid Rosewood tailpiece with a replica of the historic Epiphone triangular metal badge. The strings go over the fixed saddle and through the body which adds even more tone and sustain.
