    I'm now a very happy owner of a Modulus Bassstar fretless. It's from 95' or 96'.
    It sounds soooo GOOD, it just sings!...Graphite neck and walnut body...
    also im quite sure its the only Bassstar in Denmark!

    So anybody heard/tried a Mod. Bassstar? What du You think?

    I LOVE IT! :D

  8. "BassStar" is what Modulus called their early line of Fender-style basses. Most of the ones I've seen were P-style, but they did make J-styles, too (obviously, since you have one!). I know that Hutch Hutchinson of Bonnie Raitt's band has fretted and fretless J-style BassStars. I don't remember whether the early Modulus P/J replacement necks also said "BassStar" on them or not, though.

    Sorry, I don't know things like dates of manufacture, etc. I just remember seeing and playing them in stores in the mid/late '80s.
