Hi... My name is Adam and I'm a Modulus addict. I just purchased my third Modulus in less than 1 years time (first I got Apr 20, 2001, a Q6... second before x-mas, a VJ4 that I upgraded to EMGs... third today but sold the first to get it). I am trying to even ponder the thought of ever getting another bass beside Modulus, but I don't think I'll ever be able to. They are the greatest basses in the world (for my money at least). The one I got today is incredible. It's a '95, it looks maroon. Look closer and you see blue underneath. When I took pictures on my computer, it looked like "white-under-a-blacklight" colored. EMGs... 5 string... I Love Moduli.
