  2. Dang!, that's sweet! Kudos on the price too.

    I really want to like the graphite necks. I love space age materials and this application is the perfect marriage but I have yet to play one that gives the tone I like. For instance, the local Mars has a Modulus Graphite Jazz and it sounds like the neck and body were made of bread dough. I don't quite understand it. I would figure at over $1500 it should pretty much sing.

  3. Have you tried the Modulus Fleabass (or any other Modulus I suppose)? I didn't really like the tones I got out of the Modulus VJ either, but it was hard for me to put the the FB away.

    Mazda: Judging from the grain pattern, the body looks like ash.

    Christopher.... I guess it is.. it is heavier than most Alder bodied basses i'ved played.. so I guess its ash :)

    Congrats, DM!

    I hope this one works out better than the last 2 did.

    That is one sweet looking bass, looks like northern(heavy!) ash, I'll bet it's got a pretty bright tone, with EMGs, northern ash and graphite.
  7. Dude, that bass looks cool, especially with that transluscent blue paint job. When I first saw it, I was pretty sure it was ash, or at least it looks that way. How does it sound?

  10. just wonderin how you like the neck??I was thinking about getting a Moses neck for my fretless jazz special.I changed the p\u's a couple years ago,but now my fingerboard is less than perfect due to many years of stainless steel roundwounds.let us know what you think after you had a little time with it

    a very cool looking bass.
    What is the fretboard made of? In your picture it looks like ebony, but it's hard to tell.

    By the way, how's that Salas doing?

    You're right about the Fender DM. I love the graphite. Great sustain!

    rekesbass: I love the neck, its fast and its like a PBass neck! The thing I really wanted :) Which was Jazz Bass + PBass Neck :) I love it

    Saint: The fretboard is all graphite too from what I see.. I don't see any wood patterns and it looks different from my Salas Fretboard, which is ebony. SO i guess its all graphite :) and Salas is doing fine and I still love it to hell.. you should seriously get one ;)

    fatboy: Its not a Fender body :) Its made by Warmoth from what I'm thinking.. I've never really seen a Translucent blue Fender with that Turtle Shell type pickguard ;) And having Active EMGs installed? :)

    steamboat: I WANT A FLEABASS!!! GRR!!! :mad:
