Along with the Others... Show Your Modulus!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bobbykokinos, Mar 17, 2005.


  1. Looks like the last "Show Your Modulus" thread was in 2002.. Time for a new one!! I'll go. 1996 Modulus Quantum 6 with a Sweetspot Pickup with the turbo option. One of the "I don't need no stinkin truss rod" models :) . Someone ordered it at a music store, never picked it up.. Their loss.. My Gain!

    this awesome fretless is at the local Guitar Center. I had never played a Modulus fretless before trying this one. It's just really, really nice. Very warm sounding but when you turn up the treble you can slap and get very close to a fretted sound. If it's still there on wednesday... :cool:

  17. Ah, a modulus discussion. I must get involved in every modulus discussion.

    Here is my 2004 flea bass that I've posted more than a few times on this forum and others :p . Damn modulus for changing the flea bass headstock. Oh well, it still plays incredibly well and looks cool.

    I'll get involved if I must :D

    This picture is a bit dated, since it was taken I've replaced the existing Lane Poor MM for a Nordstrand MM4.2 (and am loving it MUCH more). I've also added a series/parallel and active/passive switch.

    What did the old flea bass head stock look like. Can some one give me a side by side comparison?
