    I have a really nice Modulus Sweetspot five for sale. I recently acquired this but find myself needing to move it on for financial reasons only. It has a cool finish red over blue, a huge ABM bridge, an EMG DC pickup with 18 volt EMG preamp treble and bass with center detents.

    The bass has minor wear on the body but not bad marks and the top is very clean. It has a minor chip on the back of the head stock by the tuners. I will inspect it closely tonight for any other mentionable wear. The neck does not have a truss rod, but doesn't move, and is flat with low action. By the way, the neck is SKINNY! The hardware has minimal if any pitting. Original gold knobs installed for sale....there are black ones on here in one picture

    It sounds huge. It can do slap with easy and can pull off finger-style funk or rock. The previous owner played in an original Metal band using this bass!

    The ONLY trade I will consider is a Sadowsky plus some money from me....only due to it being the only brand on my GAS list

    Lets start this at $1500 obo shipped and insured CONUS

    PRICE DROP $1300 shipped

    Cool Modulus. Interesting to hear it has a skinny neck; my Q5 is great, but the neck is not "skinny", but solid nonetheless. It is a little chunky, especially compared to my Roscoe SKB 3005.

    Your price seems more than fair for such a great bass, good luck!

    These are amazing. Better than a 2 PU Quantum IME.

  12. What is the difference between this bass and a two pickup quantum in terms of sound?

    I haven't owned a quantum fiver, only a genesis five and vj4. I can get great slap tone and actually pretty good finger style and old Motown tone

    Free bump. I just picked up a Sweetspot 5 myself and love it. Whoever scoops this up will be very pleased. Good luck, brother.

    Considering Modulus has ceased production for one reason or another, this should sell pretty quickly.
