    I have a great bass hanging around that I dont play much. 1998 Modulus Genesis 5 String, designed by Michael Tobias. You can surely see where the MTD Saratoga Bass came from. The bass has Graphite supporting beams around a sustainable wood neck. I believe the fingerboard is Chechen, which looks like a lighter colored Pau Farro. 35" scale neck, since it has the 8th of an inch layer of Graphite, it adds a little bit of girth to the neck profile. The frets are probably a 7.5 to 9s up and down the entire length of the neck. Not bad for an 18 year old bass. Overall excellent condition for its age. The bass is stock loaded, Bartolini Jazz bass pickups and 2 Band Bartolini preamp sound AWESOME in conjunction with the wood and Graphite combination. The rest of the bass is in Very Good condition and has some general swirls and light dings. Some light finish hazing on headstock (age). The barrel style input jack was replaced about 3 months ago.

    Comes with a super excellent conditioned, generic Hardshell Case that still has its original hang tag.

    PayPal is the preferred method of payment.

    Shipping only within the lower 48 Continental US states.

    It really is a great looking and sounding bass! I had another one in this same color back in 2002.

    Pretty cool bass! I'm a Jazz Bass guy, through and through, but thanks for the offer.

    Yep, @Maiden Bass Mike left out the Graphite, moved the neck pickup back a little and changed the control knob layout.
