Just bought a modulus quantum 5 string in so. california. This bass is incredible. I dont play on buying another bass ever again. Its so versatile. I paid around $3,000 for it but i wouldnt give it back or trade it for anything. Craftsmanship and sound are top notch. Ive been playing for 20yrs and finally found a keeper. For those worried about the price tag, it will even out in the long run. Ive seen some on ebay for cheaper, but i dont trust them for sh t.
