    Thanks GSRLessard14.

    Update:

    Had a prospective buyer ask to see it w/out Vbass pickup. It was mounted with adhesive strips that come with pickup. No damage to finish. : )

    Just wanted to drop a line that the pickup is no longer attached.

    This shouldn't last through the day. I'm really having to fight the urge to buy this.

    Folks,

    Thanks for all the traffic...the bass has a buyer @ "the_home".
     
  11. Easily the BEST deal I've ever seen on a MVJ.

    Congrats to the buyer!

    Home, if you ever want to sell it, shoot me a PM!

    This is really tough, I don't know how I'm gonna handle it. ;)

    I expect delivery of a Roscoe SKB 3005 on Tuesday (thanks again, Joe), but I couldn't resist a Modulus at such a killer price (thanks Brian). :bassist:

    GAS is a powerful force, that's all I can say. :smug:

    Yah, I know....I have a Quantum4. Love the feel (even prefer the phenolic fretboard over wood -okay maybe I still like ebony best), appreciate the quality, and really look forward to hearing these pickups and returning to passive mode some.:p

    I have a fretless GVJ4 three color burst that I purchased in mint condition from a guy at this same price. It has a chechen FB, the Villex Pups and has the Jaco look with no PG and a control plate.

    I have some other really fine guitars that I also love, but my Mod goes to the grave with me. I have been in Buffalo NY the past month and brought two other axes with me: A Lakland custom PBass with DarkStar pup and a Roscoe SKB fiver and they both required significant neck adjustments after exposure to the damp cold weather here. Not only did my Modulus NOT require any adjustments, the thing has stayed virtually in tune and has sounded awesome since I left Houston just before the drive up here!

    You will love this guitar!!
     

  16. yeah it's really true also on my modulus flea you can expose it at extreme cold and nothing happens...no need adjustments...not a lot of basses are like that
