    So, it has come to this.
    The corona craziness has forced my hand... gotta make a work change, and I gotta buy tools.
    This is my 1991, trussless Modulus Q5, $1250 plus shipping, firm.
    Flamed maple top in red burst with the famous Modulus graphite neck.
    Seriously, stays in tune like no bass I’ve ever had, reacts zero to environmental changes.
    I bought this from Meteor Guitar Gallery in Bentonville Arkansas four years ago, it came from the Fly By Night collection, from the grand old store in Missouri.
    It has gigged with me 9 times, has mostly hung out in its Roadrunner hard case over the years, detuned when stored at length.
    Bartolini pickups, 17.5mm string spacing set.
    The low B is more firm than any bass I’ve owned, and only my long lost Tobias came close to making me smile on stage like this one has.
    It’s a players axe, see the bits of buckle rash on the back (the scratches at the neck bolts were there when I got it... didn’t understand why... didn’t care.) the phenolic fretboard shows polish wear around the 5th fret, it’s imperceptible to the fingers and effects nothing. I understand there are a couple of cats listed on the web that will plane it down and re-polish it for you. I never bothered.
    I LOVE the neck profile, and I’m mimicking it on a personal build I’m working on... slim with JUST enough meat.
    The strings are about 18 months old, you’ll wanna slap your favorites on, unless you like the deader tone
    like I do.
    Roadrunner Hardcase included.
    No trades, I gotta buy tools ASAP. $1250 plus shipping, Firm.

    That's a staggeringly amazing deal. These are amongst the best basses ever made.

    Well, times are what they are... I don’t have time to wait, I need to get tools for a job change. It’s a drag, no doubt.

    What kind of tools? Any tools you might take as part of a trade deal.

    Wow, nice bass! Used to have one just like it. I understand times are tough, all gigs cancelled and I'm considering putting a couple up for sale to
    generate some cash for bills.

    That’s one nice looking bass. Someone should grab it so they don’t loose out on the sale.

    Yes, 35” scale
    I’ve gotta weight it, I suspect under 9, but I shall let the scale do the talking.
    It’s no boat anchor, to be sure

    I’m interested. Why are you selling it so cheap? I have wanted A modulus since I first started playing in 1994....

    I am sure he will take more if you want to give him more.
