    What's up TB!!

    Has anyone seen/played/heard live the newer Bassmods K series basses? I'm specifically interested in the 5 and 6 string models on this page:
    Bass guitars by Bass Mods

    I haven't seen Bassmods basses but I"m glad they got rid of that paddel-shaped headstock! And I'm interested to hear what the KA pups w/Bassmods preamp sounds like.

    What do y'all think?

    I'm not sure why these guys are not getting more attention.

    I had a fretless K4VV for a while. I sold it because I'm mainly a 5 string player and it wasn't getting much use. It was a fantastic instrument. Form fit and finish were top notch. It came stock with Bartolini jazz pups and the proprietary pre. It (the preamp) sounded great and offered a wide variety of useful tones. The pre was defeatable with a passive tone control.

    This was the one I had.


    My only complaint was that it was HEAVY!

    I have the older, paddle headstocked K6 with the KA pickups. Mine are not the hand-wound USA Pickups. they sound fantastic with the BassMods pre. very nice, a little bit of growl, and smooth highs.

    I wouldn't hesitate for a second to order one of these basses. I am saving my money for a 7 string and it will be from them!

    love everything about the bass. can't go wrong for the price!
