    Hello to all.
    This is a Modulus Quantum 6 in wich I added a Series/Parallel/Single Coil for each pickup.
    I wanted to show you how good it sounds when in both singles and slapped. What do you think?

    Pickups are Barts QuadCoil CX and a Bart NS2TMB-18 preamp.

    They sound awesome. Nice tune too, did you make that up or is it a song?

    Great tone, nice playing. I have that same lick down, it was either from an instructional book I bought, or the Louis Johnson starlicks tape, not sure.

    Yes, it is.
    I saw a glimpse of that video where he did something like that, It is almost the same.

  10. That's a sweet tone, pretty good kung fu too.
  11. I'm sitting here playing my bass while reading the boards now that I have the internet at I just want to stop playing, sell my gear, and go get drunk.

    Nice playing.
  12. I get dibs on your GK!

    That's a sick sound luis. Not too many people mod high-end basses, but man, that sounds reeeal nice.

    Awesome tone Luis! Great slap chops too instructional tape comments aside or not! Sounds great! I have a Modulus Quantum 5 with EMG's. This is an '03 Modulus, so the EMG's are the CS series which are much more full range and less brittle/bright than their reputation. I personally don't think my bass needs any modifcation.

    Nice work. Although, I have to say I love my bass just the way it is.
