So, after a loooooooooooong time of compromising on lesser instruments, at least to me, and scouring everywhere online, I've located the bass I've been searching for, and that search took quite some time. I got tired of the uncertainty and too-often unreliability of wood necks, and missed my previous Modulus Q5's. My band does a good bit of traveling, leaving our instruments in trailers overnight in bitter cold, and during the highly humid heat of the Northeastern US.
I found a near-mint '04 Modulus Q6, with Barts and an Aggie OPB-3, in Blackstone finish w/ chrome hardware, and with the OHSC, for $1800 shipped! The seller is even giving me four months to make installments!
A 5-string is THE bass. Why? More bass. But, 6-strings are cool, too....
