I have a very nice Modulus Genesis 5 string bass, that I think is a very, very good bass. Does anyone know why Modulus decided to bail out on the Genesis Models? My only assumption is: The cost for making a neck using soft (but environmentally sustainable) woods, in conjunction with the Graphite, had to be more expensive to reproduce than the standard Modulus Graphite neck. The tooling for it must have been a nightmare too. So, I reckon the cost to produce the bass begin to exceed their projected price point. I also would imagine tossed into the equation is a portion of the design fee going to Michael Tobias. Not to mention that Norm Stockton now has an MTD bass that looks a LOT like the Genesis.
