"I recently had the pleasure of photographing Jeph Howard (a.k.a Jeph HowRAD) with his new Custom Zon Sonus. Joe Zon (friend, founder and president of Zon Guitars) worked with Jeph and VP of Production Mark Gullo, to build one of the most killer Sonus basses, to date. I had the pleasure of listening to this monster of an instrument pump thunderous lows and thick crunchy midrange growls through the most beautiful pair of Aguilar pickups and electronics I have ever heard. For stage purposes, the amplifier was hidden behind a beautifully constructed sculpture of various television and computer monitors."

The members of the Used had to overcome poverty, homelessness, and substance abuse, not to mention the straitlaced attitudes of their hometown of Orem, UT, to bring their screamo-tinged brand of post-hardcore to life. But they persevered and earned a contract with Reprise Records, releasing their self-titled debut album in June 2002. Having only played a handful of shows around Orem prior to their record's release, the band -- vocalist Bert McCracken, guitarist Quinn Allman, bassist Jeph Howard, and drummer Branden Steineckert -- began relentless nationwide touring that quickly saw their fan base multiply. Club dates soon turned into successful stints on larger-scale festival/package tours including the Warped Tour, Ozzfest, and Projekt Revolution alongside Linkin Park and Snoop Dogg.
