After the usual trip to the local music store, I decided that the Modulus Quantum 5 is my ultimate bass. I love the sound, the feel, pretty much everything about it. However, being that I'm a college student, the three+ grand for a Modulus just isn't realistic in my budget. I was wondering if anyone out there has any recommendations for basses that I should check out that are similar to the Modulus Q5(EMG pups) in sound. I'm looking to spend no more than about $1500. Although I know that there really is no substitute, I'm just looking close recommendations. Thanks.
