    Thanks to IbanezCollector giving a heads up on an amazing deal, I purchased a brand spankin' new Blue Sparkle Modulus Fleabass 4 for just over $900.

    Apparently this bass had been at the Guitar Center in Cleveland for more than a year and the manager wanted it gone. After reading IbanezCollector's post about spotting this deal, I called to verify, and it was true. I drove more than 2 hours to get it, and when I got there, the sticker price was $2250, but the clearance sticker said $999. I told them that I only had $900 plus tax to spend, and they let me have it for that.

    And let me tell you, this is no typical overplayed/under cared for Guitar Center demo. Its in fantastic shape, and only needed slight adjustments on the string heights, a good polish, and some new strings. The neck is as straight as can be.

    I am very pleased. I was just a few days away from putting in a custom order for a FB4 at $2495. For $1500 off, I can deal with the color not being my first choice, and not having the Aguilar 3 band. :D

    This is obviously not the bass you want. Wrong color, wrong preamp.
    You can give it to me if you like.
    :D

    Its definitely growing on me! I felt it was a little in your face at first. But I have plenty of conservative colors, and Im thinking it adds some spice to my mainly sunburst/natural collection.

    Plus I volunteer my playing at a megachurch, and when I went to practice last night, everyone was going gah-gah over it. :bassist:

    Yeah, that finish is sweet, but, what I wanna know is how the neck is on that.

    Welcome to the club. But dude, you dare not winge about the colour! If it's not silver or blue flake it's not really a flea bass. Plus blue sparkle is the best.

    They are flawless
