    Can anyone tell me the scale length on a Modulus Sweetspot 5? I understand that the Flea basses are descended from the Sweetspot basses and the Flea 5 has a 34" scale (according to the Modulus web site). But then again, most all the other Modulus 5's are 35" scale, aren't they?

    I beleive the SweetSpot is a particular kind of Quantum bass, no? In that case, all Quantums are 35" scale sir.

    I believe the Flea Bass was derived from the Sonic Hammer, and not the Sweetspot bass. As atldeadhead stated the Sweetspot was a Quantum with a single pickup placed in the traditional "sweetspot", whereas the Sonic Hammer was a new design from the ground up.

    Damn. Thanks for the info guys. I thought I'd found another fretless but I want to stick with 34" to match my other basses. I mess up too much on fretless when I switch between 34" and 35".
    Oh well...
