just added this flea bass to my arsenal i was never interested in one before untill i saw this
I've yet to see a Flea with that type of top or pickup configuration. That one nice looking bass!
yes, nice bass!
I love Modulus, and that is a setup that does the flea justice. I have 2 Modulus basses on order, a quantum walnut 5 string, and a Genesis fretless jazz bass. They will be my second and third Modulus basses that I own. Just when I thought I was completely over the Flea bass you have to go and show me that beautiful picture!
i wasn't even looking for a new bass but i stumbled across this at a local store in boston it was custon built for a guy who changed his mind and i was in the right place at the right time got it for a steal it plays even better than it looks
A knockout bass! Nice for you!!!
Very nice! I really like Modulus basses - they have a voice all their own.
Nicest Flea I've ever seen! Congrats.
Beautiful. Blood-curdling, but beautiful. It looks like the top of a Fear Factor pizza ... but beautiful.
Very nice looking. By the way, what makes it a Flea bass? I thought a Flea was basically a Quantum with a single MM, a pickguard, and a sparkle finish, but this has none of those.
I think there are a number of differrences on the Flea bass comparred to the Quantum's. The Flea has 34' scale and 22 frets, and the Q's have a 35'scale and 24 frets. The flea has a MM or jazz pick up config, and the Q's have soapbars. The Flea has much more of a vintage feel to it.
also the top is usually different as well as a differnt head stock
Sweet! Beautiful guitar!!!
So I have a stupid quesiton.
How different does it sound with the extra pup?
I love the sound of the Flea..BTW.
But did the addition completely change the voice?
this is the only flea i have ever played so i really can't compare it...but i honestly am now selling my q5 or looking to reade for a q4 because i love this bass so much
I play a Modulus Q5 with Blackstone quilt maple 5A Top, Alder body. EMGs and composite fingerboard. What a glorious bass.
Your Flea (if you can call it that) is the prettiest Flea I've ever seen. Is that a standard configuration? sure looks like a custom variant to me. Congrats! It is AWESOME. What are the pickups? EMG? Barts?
What kind of amp do you play it through?
That bass is beautiful! Now I want one.
Bad@$$ bro... I like it.
no it isn't a standard model it was orderded special for some randon buy who put 500 down and than took off negating his deal so i got the bass for a steal it has seymour duncan bassline pickups and an Aguilar Obp-1 Pre-Amp...i play this bass through an ampeg b4r and swr golliath senior...awesome sound best b string ever heard way better than my q5 thats why i am selling it i will never play it again after purchasing this amazing bass(wich is saying alot because my q5 is the shiz)
that looks great.. makes me want to steal it.... haha.. just kidding
