    Great bass, but I am selling it to get a 5 string Gould. Right around 8 lbs. Includes Mono bag. No blemishes that I can find on it. Geoff Gould is the founder of Modulus, but still makes fantastic instruments. This has a graphite neck with phenolic fingerboard. I am just in need of a 5 string, so this one is on the block... If the other bas I am selling goes, there is a chance I will take this one down.

    It is.. I have one back and forth on selling this one, but I would get better use from a 5 string at this point, and the only way i can make that happen is to offload this one.

    Did that bridge come on it stock or was it added after market?

    I had it installed by The Bass Place (the store I bought it from). It originally came with gold hardware that I thought did a bit of a disservice to the incredible maple top. I had the Babicz installed and the tuners swapped.

    I wont be that upset if it doesn;t sell. I am hoarding money right now hoping i raise enough to buy a Gould 5 without selling it. Then I will have 2. Next step is tonal domination.

    I have three basses and an amp for sale. Just sold one bass and if another one sells it will be hard not to buy this off of you. Gould basses rule.

    I like them better than the Quantums, and that is saying a lot.

    As far as I know, this is the only one Geoff has done in this finish. I have never seen any others.

    well all my modulus are gone and only Gould remain graphite wise in my collection...so that's saying a lot as well!

    I like the neck dimensions better, the body shape is a little more ergonomic to me, and it is extremely light. At first I was not a fan of the electronics, but I have found settings that I really love. I contemplated swapping them out, but now I wouldn;t dream of it.

    Are you interested in a trade for a Modulus Q5?

    Not really. I really love the necks on these Goulds, and I think they are a better design overall. I am really hoping I save the money in time so I can just keep it. I don't like the idea of getting rid of it, but I would rather a 5 string if I have to make a choice.
