    IMG_0808.JPG I got my bass Friday direct from Bassmods.
    I was so pleased with the Natural one I got used , I decided to get a new Blue one as a backup.
    $1,100 spent and easily one of the best basses I've owned especially when considering value for dollar.
    The new one weighed in at 9.4 lbs and my first one at 9.6.

    I'm thinking of switching out the knobs to either black Fender or Sadowsky style.

    I know it sounds good. You should hear Maurice himself play it.

    Might be better to check the website for specs. But it feels kinda in the same family as Sadowsky , Warmoth , Fender

    String spacing is 19mm. I forgot the nut size but I think is 1 7/8".

    02202174.jpg Great Customer Service!

    Just wanted to give recognition where recognition is due!

    my blue bass was sounding weird so I emailed Bassmods and they replaced the rear defective pickup within a week and reimbursed me for the cost of the repair.

    great customer service, better than I have received from any bass builder/manufacturer

    i'm now considering one of their 5 string, double coil bridge pickup models

    These have really peaked my interest lately. Can the necks be ordered to your own personal preference ?
