    -Alder Body, 5A Quilted Maple Top
    -Velvet Quilt over Blue
    -Bartolini Pick-ups
    -Bartolini NTMB-18v Pre-amp with pre-wired gain

    -Hardshell Case
    -Allan Wrenche Set
    -D'Addario EXL 170-6
    -Shaller Straplocks/Strap

    Age: 7 months. (Bought from basscentral.com)
    Condition: Mint

    Reason for selling: I'm 5'7" or so, my hands are rather small, the 35" scale has just gotten the better of me. When it hurts to pick-up one of your dreams basses... that's just sad.

    Info: The bass has not been gigged at all, and has pretty much only been for home practice. It's been on a plane once, but with that neck it didn't even need adjustment afterword, and there is nothing wrong with this instrument. It's beautiful, more pictures opinion request. Alas, I don't have the owners manual, but Modulus has one online, and the three original Allan wrenches, I have two, so I'll include a tool. Also, a brand new set of D'Addario's.

    That is one nice Quantum man. I'm beginning to miss mine.
     
  3. Just in case people are scared by his lack of feedback, I figured I'd post something here for Tryxx. In my personal experiences with Tryxx, he's always been an oustanding guy. He's not a bad player either... :p


    This bass really is in excellent condition. Everything on it plays extremely well, it's got low-ish action and perfect intonation, and when I played it I noticed no damage to the bass what-so-ever on any scale. Tryxx takes impeccible care of his gear.



    Fantastic bass... Too bad I don't have the money...

    Yeah, they are outstanding basses, really. Hey, if you're interested. ;)

    Sounds like an excellent bass, but I'm really looking for cash on this one. My next route is to go semi-custom with a Status neck.

    Andrew, thanks alot. :smug:

    Oh, and price drop.
