    You got a nice set there. I can't see having two of almost the same bass (Ive never played those basses before, but I LOVE Quantums), but congrats.

    One's a four, the other's a five. Even if both were identical: the man knows what he likes, and wouldn't have to settle for second best if he had to use his backup. :p

    Anyway, they're beauties. I love bass-ic black!
     
  11. Very cool pair! Stefan would be proud. :)

    sweet....how's that B string?

    It's interesting that both have the hipshot B bridge..(correct?) ....why do I remeber BAII on Fleas?...
     
  13. That was the thing. I tried to own the one flea four and a different fice string (Brice/SX, Warwick, I had a musicman in my possession for awhile also) and none of them did it for me. The only bass I've held onto for more than a year was the Flea four, and I figure, it's been that long, might as well get another one because i wouldn't be satisfied any other way it seems :meh:

    :hyper:
     
  14. They are sharp as...as...something extremely sharp in the looks department. Simplicity is king, although I do love me some good walnut.
     
  15. That's the thing. I got my first flea without playing a flea before, only quantums. But I absolutely loved Stefan's tone, and nothing got me close, So I took the plunge and ordered a flea. Fell in love with the thing, and I don't blame him for owning all those moduli. He knows what's good, and his new Ken Smith is absolutely gorgeous, but I am done with basses for a few years.

    There are a few different options I believe when ordering, and Modj has changed little things around every once in a while I believe. These are both 2005 production runs, they are within 100 serial numbers of eachother, heh.

    And the b-string is very nice to play, very smooth and tight, doesn't get sloppy.
     
  16. Awesome set!

    Have fun with those babies :D
     
  17. Oh believe me, I have been for the last 6 hours, I don't think the thing has left my sight sans going to the bathroom :bag:
     
  18. heh, sounds a bit like me with my new SR5. :smug:
