    .....a Modulus Quantum 5.
    I tryed it a couple of weeks ago;I'm going to pick it up douring the next week.
    It's a great deal:2000 Euro,since is a Demo bass;but it's absolutely MINT!A new one would be 3600.

    It has an ideal combination for fretless:alder body+bartolinis=warm and fat sound;
    graphite neck=never ending soustain and clarity.
    I think this is why I liked this Modulus so much,over the other ones I tryed.
    The top is a gorgeous quilted maple with a natural high gloss on it.

    Pics soon

    Now the problem is to get used to fretless again,since I sold my Laurus fretless more than 6 months ago,and I 've lost the (few) ability I had on it.I realized I've got worst on the fretless basses I tryed at the Frankfurt musik messe last week.

    Yeah...very,very sweet mwahhhhh!!!
    I'm totally in love with this bass!!!!May be the best fretless I've ever played.

    Go figure that I don't like fretted modulus!
    It's not the first time I like a fretless which I don't like fretted,and viceversa.Did it happen to you too,guys?

    Yes,my fretless chops and tone are coming back,thank you!

    But I'm still not a fretless-minded and tasted player.
    May be I won't ever.I'm too much funky!:p :D :D

    Grazie!;)
     
  16. Very nice. I have been getting some GAS for a Modulus lately, just something about the graphite neck, but they are a bit pricey for me. Sounds like you found yourself a keeper! Love that quilt top.

    Yes,
    I think it will my definitive fretless.
    I'm absolutely happy with my gear:I think it will take a very long, long time before I'll buy something else.
