    Hey everyone. This listing is for my Modulus Genesis. This is a converted fretless five, and features a beautiful quilted maple top in amber finish and Bartolini pickups and preamp. Includes the original hard case. This is a rare one. Not a lot of Genesis models floating around out there, and it seems like almost no fretless ones. These are great instruments, combining some of the best elements of Modulus and MTD in a classic, but still modern looking package. Everyone should own one of these.

    $2299 obo, shipped. I always consider trade offers if you want to make one. I can go plus/minus cash as needed. Please message me if you have something in mind, or if you have any questions. Thanks!

    Truss Rod? Scale? String Spacing? Fingerboard wood? Weight?

    The Genesis models all have truss rods, and are 35" scale with 19mm spacing. The board is either chechen or granadillo. I'm not sure how to tell the difference. It is right around 9 and a half pounds.

    That looks like Chechen. Grenadillo is more similar to rosewood, chechen is a darker wood with tighter grain.

    Hi FilCo. Is this bass gone or do you still have it for sale?

    Lovely Genesis: I’ve always wanted one, but I’m not the largest of Bassists and it’s simply too large, both in body size & string-spacing. :banghead:

    Did you make the Ramp, and if not could you pass along who did? It’s something I’d like to add to several of my Basses, but have never found a luither in my area to do so.

    Thanks in advance whether you have info or not, and posting either here or a PM is fine, whichever is easiest for you. :thumbsup:
