    That is nice. I love the blue tinted graphite,,real cool. I think LP75 might be interested. I had mine listed, and decided to keep it instead. :)

    If anyone ever wants to get rid of one of these, please let me know. I have wanted one of these for some time.

    I was following the Ebay auction and def don't blame anyone for backing down on the sale of theirs. I'd change my mind as well.

    Thanx in advance

    What makes this different from a normal Modulus, the neck-through?

    You would think more people would have TBX I would like to see more pics. I have two a 5 string fretless with checken top and bottom which is super rare and a 6 string lace wood top with piezo. As soon as I can get pix up I will. We should have our own club.

    Yes. Handmade by 1 person(they had a small specialized team that worked on these exclusively) from start to finish under Geoff Goulds supervision when he was with Modulus.

    According to a recent thread elsewhere on TB, the Modulus TBX basses were extremely rare; not many made at all. That sort of surprised me, because up until 1988 Modulus only made neck-thru Quantums...but the scuttlebutt is that there are probably less than a hundred (or two hundred? I dunno, I'm guessing) in existance.

    Which is a damn shame, because I have wanted a Quantum-5 TBX so freakin' bad for a couple of decades now! #1 on my GAS list. That yellow one in post #1? That is the shiznit. Me want.
