SOLD Modulus Genesis 5 with video

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Jrussblues, Sep 30, 2017.

  1. Price:
    Another bass that I don’t want to part with but I need to downsize so hopefully it finds a great new home.
    I think the production year of this bass is 2000, its a genesis 5 that was made by modulus’ head luthier then put into his private collection for a long time, untouched. I purchased this bass as a new old stock instrument about a year ago and I have gigged with it for a year.
    The bass sounds great and everything functions as it should. There are some very small dings here and there but they are extremely minor and I couldn’t really capture them on camera. The only ding I could get a picture of is right at the tip of the headstock. Other than that it has swirls here and there that are all indicitave of an instrument that has been played. The cavity cover, for some reason, has the most swirling, almost looks like buckle rash on the plastic but it’s not because my instruments sit much higher than that. Also, the case lost one of its feet.
    Now onto the good stuff.
    The genesis basses were a collaboration between mike Tobias and modulus, it even says so on the truss rod cover, so they are really well made and really well designed.
    The action is currently very low, whoever purchases the instrument my want to raise it.
    Includes the OHSC, tools, and a strap with strap locks on it.
    The neck was sanded to a satin finish by modulus when i purchased it, before they shipped it out. It feels great all the way up and down the neck.
    If you have any questions please let me know.

  5. Lol
  6. I am open to trades as long as it is something I can move. Really looking to downsize and get back to a main bass-tuner-head-cab set up. The worst thing I can say is no or throw in some cash.
  7. Found and updated the specs in the description. Thanks for looking.
