Well, yesterday I got to go down to my local music store. They mainly sell higher end basses like Alembic and Modulus. Well, I played the Modulus, and it didn't seem like anything that special. I played through an Ampeg half-stack which I was more impressed with than the bass. The neck was nice and It looked awesome, but it just didn't feel like anything special. Have any of you guys noticed that with a 4000 dollar bass? This one was a real dissapointment.
