    Walnut topped Flea 5.


    I think it would be better with a wooden fingerboard.

    But alas, I'd take it anyway, and I think she's a beaut.

    Very attractive. Modulus uses graphite constructed necks, correct?

  6. that Flea is indeed gorgeous.... was it a one-off? I've never seen one like that before.

    Edit: what i meant is... most often the Fleas seem to come in solid or sparkle colour finishes, as far as i've seen?
  7. Very nice.

    Reminds me of a Zon instantly.
  8. needs a pickguard, i didnt even notice it was a flea until i read it.

    but it is really really nice. take it in a heart beat.

    Pretty nice. And I can assure it would NOT be better with a wooden fingerboard.

    I wouldn't call it the most beautiful ever. I wouldn't call it one of the 10 most beautiful ever. I would call it pretty darn cool though. That looks great!

    Neato, definitely the nicest Flea I've seen so far.
  13. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder :)
  14. Perhaps you are right. I like the contrast from the matching pickup and fingerboard color.

    Pretty nice, but something about the one pickup setup has always bothered me. I'm sure its got killer tone though.
