You need a pic to prove it - TalkBass rules.
The approach to this bass is unlike anything I've ever played. The ingrained resistance I've had to other basses problems (action, attack, neck issue etc. etc. ) are just NOT THERE. So at first i was over compensating and finding the Q5 a little over whelming to play. Now that I've got hours under the belt, this is the best instrument I've ever owned.
No pics means no Q5 + mind not blown = didn't happen.
Seriously though huge Congrats - and we need pics.
gah! my noob is showing. i cant upload the pic from my phone
Congrats....Q5's have long been on my wishlist
So translation: It's overwhelming easy to play?
Wow - that is nice! What a beautiful bass! Congrats man.
Yes that's a good translation - takes a bit of getting used to
Very nice! Congrats!
I've been an Alembic player for many years. However, after seeing Phil Lesh play his Modulus with Furthur, and coming across a Q6 at Bass NW, I made the plunge. I totally agree with your assessment of the Quantum series. They are amazing basses. Much easier to make sound good compared to the Alembic. Don't get me wrong, I still love my Alembic, but the Modulus stands up to it on equal footing.
It's a looker!
Now you need a Quantum 6 and a Quantum 5 or 6 fretless and don't forget you also need a TBX also.
Q6 s are monsters. I'm sure you know Dave schools plays one of them. I'm already starting to hear - for example hitting harmonics - similar sounds to his playing
I'm going through an Eden head > ampeg cab and it sounds huge.
What differentiates. Quantum from a quantum tbx? I wasn't clear when doing superficial research.
He also needs one of those blower thingies so his hair blows all up and everywhere when he's jammin it!!
Already have one of those haha
