Kind of a weird title for the thread, but I wanted to ask a question based on some observations. I have playing out much, much more lately (mostly DB) and hanging almost exclusively over in TBDB, but I have noticed as of late that the used prices on Quantum basses have creeped up. (I'm in the hunt for a fretless five or one worthy of conversion) Anyway, I was wondering if there was some change at Modulus that prompted this (like the new ones are made from old milk cartons) or perhaps it's just the circle of things. I've been around long enough to know that there's always a what's hot and what's not thing with any brand of bass. A year ago, you could snag a clean Q5 all day long and twice on Sunday for $1,300 or so. I have seen two or three turn on ebay for aroudn $1,800. That's a lot more than I payed for my mintish Quantum two years ago. BTW, the Q5 is now the officially longest-owned and regularly-played bass to ever have a place in my now nearly 20 years of playing. Just got out of the studio with it. It's the best tone I have have ever gotton on tape.
