    I'm seriously considering swapping out my Fender Jazz neck for a modulus genesis neck. I'm looking for more reliability and the strength to handle flatwounds. Does anyone have any experiences, positive or negative, with the genesis necks? (especially as a replacement)
     
  2. I have a Genesis VJ, and the neck is really great--very stable (still adjustable with the truss rod), and it feels and plays wonderfully. The only negative in my opinion is the super high gloss finish on the back. I prefer satin-finished necks, and this one feels kind of gross. But once I start playing, I'm so caught up in the awesome sound of the bass that the gloss doesn't bother me too much.
     
  3. I've recently purchased a VJ ...man o man do I love that neck.Stable,even harmonic response,no dead notes.The neck is virtually trouble free.If you decide to buy a neck,you won't regret it.
