    Beautiful looking and sounding bass I picked up here on TB. I love it but I continue to play my Lull as my main bass. I am interested in selling outright (first choice) or trading for something that would compliment what I already have. This is a factory upgraded Modulus Genesis VJ 4 (Vintage Jazz). How you see this bass is how it was custom ordered from the factory (about 10 years ago). The finish is like a really cool pale metallic green with matching headstock. Really looks great under stage lights. Comes with the tort pickguard and white pearl guard (never been mounted). Lots of options on this bass.

    Carbon fiber spine with wood laminates for neck, headstock and Chechen fretboard. Check out photo's, very cool.
    Hipshot satin ultralight tuners, this does have the truss rod, passive Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pickups ( sound fantastic), string thru body. The neck has a thin profile and a nice comfortable fast feel to it. The case is in reasonable shape with some warping on the top, plus a weird bump, but fully functional and very secure, inside of the case is excellent.
    Only blemishes are superficial with 3 small nicks (see photo) on the lower back and a small ding down on the back of the neck by the headstock, which you don't feel when playing.

    The tone of this bass is great, punchy and growly like a good jazz should be. The neck pickup is full and round. The weight is 9.8lbs, but well balanced.


    Sale: [DEL]$1125[/DEL] $1025 shipped (paypal)
    Trade: Lakland Darryl Jones 5 Lake Placid Blue only, Lakland 55-02 (Sunburst-prefer deluxe model), Lull M5V Plus or minus cash as appropriate.

    Thanks, sounds great. I'd never had a bass with the Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pickups. They really have a nice bite to them.

    Up, up for a great bass. I know, I know, it's one of those colors you either love or hate, but I do get tired of traditional finishes.
