If I were you - I'd scoop one up if possible. I'd been wanting one since the early 90's but ended up getting two Zon's (which I love). Then around 2009 or so - I finally placed an order for just a Modulus stand alone neck (made to order). But this was the exact time that Modulus started having problems and went out of business - so Bass Northwest (the store I placed the order through) gave me my money back. It wasn't until about a month ago that I finally picked up a used VJ model. I wish I had gotten one sooner - what a great bass!
