    Up for sale is a PERFECT CONDITION 2004 Modulus vj4 fretless bass!


    This is the most incredible playing, sounding (and looking!) fretless I've ever played, in flawless condition (seriously not a scratch on it)! Breathtaking sunburst finish over 5A quilted maple top. Pics can barely capture its vibrance. The action is insanely low with beautiful "mwah" but it could be set up however you want. This neck has a truss rod for easy setup. The sustain and stability of the modulus neck makes for an unbelievable fretless. Incredibly sensitive response to the dynamics of your playing and the notes can bloom for days. The stock bartolini pickups were lackluster to my ears, so I swapped them out for some James Reed noiseless neodymium pickups which are simply incredible. Rather expensive but worth the upgrade, look them up if you don't already know about them. Other than the pickups, everything is stock. I have it strung up with some pretty fresh Ken Smith pressure wound strings which sound and feel fantastic. I also added a fender deluxe jazz control plate for looks (control cavity is rear mounted) but it's not bolted on, just held on by the knobs, easily removed but included in the deal unless you don't want it.

    The condition of this bass is perfect. A total closet queen. If there were any blemishes, I'd list them but there's honestly not even much surface swirling that I can really see on the finish. The only thing I can think to disclose is that there's very faint surface scuffing on the fingerboard itself but it's purely cosmetic and there are no grooves whatsoever. These phenolic fingerboards are tough as all get out, and perfectly planed/level and there is no susceptibility to warping with these bad boys.

    Comes with Mint Fender deluxe padded gig bag! Priced to move quickly at $1,700 shipped and insured!
