ever seen one of these before? any info on them?
pictures taken from basscentral.com
That really is the new Modulus model. Not sure what to think....
I like it! It's like the Explorer and the Big Al had a graphite baby. Do they make a 5'er?
oooooh... i like... i wonder if they make a 5
I REALLY want to buy one of those and throw a couple Darkstars and a custom pickguard on it.
I couldn't say anything but now that the pics are out... I played a prototype of this bass. The neck is like the Flea bass so it's chunkier than the VJ neck for those that might want to know. It's a cool body shape, good balance. There was still some question as to what the pickup would be but I think they settled on Bartolini. At the time, there was no mention of a 5-string version but makes sense.
When I played it, I remember that I didn't like the pickguard design. I thought it should be placed under the strings to the truss rod but that was just for slapping purposes. Too much space between the strings and body with the way they have it now (for those that slap IMO). I would want one of these if it had a VJ neck and a different pickguard. That is just me though.
Modulus copied the EBMM Big Al?????
Too much unused space on the body.
I think it's more like a Carvin-Dolphin-Al.. IMO
i like how the advertisement talks about the price like people would think its some off brand of modulus when its still almost 2,500 bucks. Im not a fan of those body types but i love the look of modulus necks
yeah i can see a little of that carvin sb4000 in there.
Interesting... Carvin setting the style trend?
I agree...maybe a Musicman style pickguard. That would solve the space under the strings issue for me (for slap). Not that this bass is for slapping..just saying.
I love my Quantum bass but the look of this one leaves me cold.
Man i really dig that, its kinda t-birdish
Inbred, crossbreeding can sometimes give you fugly, dramatic results apparently!
Hats off to Modulus for not "selling out" and marketing cheap off-shore Moduli or even worse, wood-necked Moduli . It's sad to see so many "boutique" builders selling off their names these days
I don't mind the body shape. But I'm staying with my Quantum 4.
