    Check it out. Looks to be a great deal.
     
  2. Neck has a major bow. Just called. Said they have had a ton of calls on it and that the action is super high and can't be adjusted.

    Bummer, I was hoping someone was about to get an amazing deal.
     
  4. It has a front bow too...which is horrible.

    New neck from Modulus is going to be at least $1,000 on a Q5. Priced one a few years ago.

    The luthier I work with can do wonders with that neck. You just have to know someone who can work on it. That bass has been there for a long time!

    She is mine!
     
  7. Keep in mind that that's not a wood neck man.

    If you check my avitar, you will see a Bassstar neck through with no truss. Thing was a mess when I bought it. My luthier guy did an amazing job with it and it plays like butta!
     
  9. I figured you knew what you were getting into, just wanted to be sure. Good luck with that thing man, it's a steal if you get it playing well for not too much.

    I actually made an offer and got it for less than what they were asking. I can't wait to get it... Did not want another 5'er, but it really looks cool and I know I can get it up and running perfectly, so I may have a Fender 5'er for sale here soon!
     
  11. What was your final price? I was waiting on them to call me back and give me the dimensions of the action on the 1st, 12th, and 24th.

    I hope it works out well! I am having a lot of fun hunting for stuff in their used section. Picked up a markbass compressore for $89 last night.
     
  13. Please pm me before you put your fender up f/s.
     
  14. Called about it and wanted to think it over for a day before i jumped which was a mistake i guess. Good luck and i hope you can fix the neck

    Good score.
    Piccolo strings and an octave pedal and it's fixed :D

    Hell no! Defret, level and plane the board, refret and adjust the bridge. That is what the plan is! The guy I use to do all my bass work is amazing!

    Modulus gave me the quote around 320 bucks, but for 600+320 is still a big score. :cool::cool:

    OMG. Did they way get this one wrong. It plays nice. Needs a set up. Needs maybe a fret dressing, but other than it is really in great shape
