    i have a black flea-5 with bartolinis. man i love this bass. it sounds great and has near-perfect action. my main bass is an alembic spoiler which i'm about to put into retirement. the modulus comes close to beating it in some aspects. it is much lower maintenance (i.e. truss rods never need adjusting...alembic requires lots of adjustments every time the weather changes), a lot tougher (you don't have to treat it like a valuable antique) and it plays and sounds almost as good (sizzling top end and tight low B, both due to the composite neck and fingerboard). i've heard other people didn't like this bass, but i have no complaints. it also looks cool.
