I just picked up one of these on a trade for a Modulus Gensis 5 that I've been trying to move for quite some time now. First impressions are pretty stinkin' nice!!! Specs: Ash body, brazilian rosewood fingerboard, maple neck with what I think is a walnut piece at the base of the neck where it bolts up. Nice quilted maple top as well (4A I think). Hipshot hardware at both ends. Bart 3 band and Bart p/ups. Three way mini toggle for mid knob frequency and a active passive switch. Overall a very nice bass. I'm a die hard Sadowsky player, but this has been in my hands for most of the night and it feels pretty comfy. 35" scale and all. Anyone else have any experence with these good or bad?? I agreed to the trade as the guy really liked my Modulus and stepped up with $250 extra as well. To me it was a wash because I got the Mod on a trade and never really played it, just slapped it up for sale and my thought was just to do the same for this. But I'm gonna play the thing for a few and see what happens. Any thoughts on it's value?? It has some player ware, but nothing that a bit of TLC wouldn't take care of. It's a 1998 model.
