  1. Hi all TB'ers,

    I am on the verge of ordering a new Modulus bass.
    Here's the choices:

    1. Genesis VJ
    - Fretless
    - maple fingerboard
    - Villex pups

    2. VJ
    - Fretless
    - Chechen fingerboard
    - Villex pups


    aaaahhh! The choices! I want some "mwah" in this bass, but I have never played a Genesis neck before, and I am a little aprehensive about a wooden neck after 2 bad experiences with Fender basses. TB'ers who have played Genesis necks, please reassure (or warn) me that it isn't going to die on me, and it will remain SUPER MODULUS STRAIGHT for years to come (I like extremely low action).

    I just played them in stores. I can't tell you about the longevity of the Genesis neck, but I like the tone of the Genesis over the Q5. It had a warmer and thicker tone to it than the Q5. I love both of them though.
