    I'm thinking about ordering a new bass and would like to get the same fret size as my current go to bass - a 90 Modulus Q5. Can anyone ID these? My guess would be 6230 or 6105 but that's just me eyeballing the Warmoth chart.

    Thanks!

    ^^^^^^^^^

    Gonna have to measure, bro.

    If you're taking guesses while holding it in your hands, do you honestly expect someone to give you a reliable answer from looking at a pic on a screen?

    Take it easy man. I once had a bass refretted and upon first look the luthier said "oh those look like 6230's". He then measured to make sure. That's all I was looking for.



     
  6. Well, take it to that guy and have him look at it.
    I could guess for you but from here it would just be a guess and you would have to tell me what gauge those strings are.

    No hostility, bro. But as per your story, even the fret whisperer takes measurements.
