    I am the original owner. I ordered this from The Bass Place in AZ May 1993 after I spoke with Geoff Gould at Modulus directly regarding models and features. I had a steady rock and roll gig at a ski town bar and got bored on stage, so I got this to liven up my nights. I played it for maybe 3 years, and then it really has not been used much except 5-6 times in my studio. The case shows a bit of wear but the instrument has no dings or dents.

    You can see in the photos I have the original literature. Some of this info is specs from that literature. Let me know if you have any questions or want some specific photo taken.

    Thanks for looking and for the comment.

    I was asked to photograph wear. To give you perspective, these were shot with a regular Minolta, nothing fancy, on a countertop with overhead can lights and with a handheld LED worklight. It was like doing a tick check on your pet. The high gloss finish makes it nearly impossible to get an image; while holding it IRL, you can sort of move it back and forth a little to reveal what is a cat fur hair and what is a scratch or haze. I only found a couple of things you can specifically feel as you run your fingernail across them. The rest are so barely in the finish, they just don't photograph well. I marked a red circle around the spots I found. This instrument has never been dropped or fallen. The case shows the wear from being loaded in and out of the wagon, though.

    Okay; there is slight wear at thumb position, the little marks below the reflection of my worklight:

    There is a bit of haze here, too:

    I found this little ding on the edge, it's under the finish, so it's original to the manufacture but I want to document it for you (the reflection shows my camera and my worklight; this thing is glossy):

    I found these two dings on the back:

    This is strap haze:

    I tried to show the Neck relief:
