Hello, I have an eye disease that is restricting my vision. I'm finding it harder and harder to make sense out of my six string bass. I am considering trading for a comparable 5 string. I would prefer trading for a Modulus Q5 as I know that Modulus guitars are consistent. Bass made in 2001 Bartolini Pickups and Preamp (takes two batteries) Wood Quilted Maple Phenolic Fingerboard (I think. Has absolutely no grain. Is the standard fingerboard for Q6) Absolutely no issues. Has been rock solid since day one. Comes with a nice hard case.
