    1989 Modulus Graphite TBX-5 neck-thru model.
    Cocobolo top. No truss rod. The entire bass was recently refinished by Pat Wilkins. The gloss on the neck was just done a couple of weeks ago (I bought it with a satin finish and Pat glossed it back up for me). Looks superb for its age. Low B sounds thunderous!

    Specs are as follows:

    • Neck-thru Modulus Graphite neck w/the KLD (1000 ladies dancing) pattern
    • Graphite nut
    • 1 3/4" at the nut
    • 2 7/8" at the 24th fret
    • Phenolic fretboard
    • Modulus GB70 tuners - Black (Brand New - just purchased from Modulus)
    • Alder wings with Cocobolo top
    • EMG 40DC dual-coil pickups
    • EMG BQC System electronics (vol/bal/stacked bass-treb/stacked mids). The mini-switch is not connected to anything
    • Fully adjustable black ABM brass bridge
    • Currently strung with Thomastik-Infeld JR345 Jazz rounds ($100 strings!)
    • Weight is just north of 8.5 lbs.
    • Includes Modulus Graphite hardshell case (condition of the case is a bit rough, but it will protect the bass during shipment)
    $3800 shipped CONUS. Everything I sell is professionally packed, shipped and fully insured through UPS.

    Man, I love the look of cocobolo tops! Unfortunately, I love the look of non-zero numbers in my bank account more, so I'll just have to admire the pictures and envy the lucky buyer. :D

    GLWTS of a gorgeous bass!

    What did the mini switch used to do?

    No idea. The switch was disconnected when I purchased the bass.
