I just bought a Custom Modulus Q5 with Aero pickups and an Aguilar Pre-amp, with a Burled maple top. I played every bass in the Store in my neighborhood owned by a personal friend, and this bass was hands down the best sounding bass I've ever played. Not to mention it is beautiful. I was wondering if there are any other Modulus players out there and if you could tell me your experiences. I have been playing bass for more than ten years now but have always had a very tight budget. Finally I was able to buy a quality bass and since I never had even considered them before I knew very little about them. I trusted my freinds advise and bought this bass and LOVE IT.
