    $1450 shipped within Continental US, PayPal only

    * Warmoth Black Korina chambered P-Bass body
    * Modulus 21-fret J-Bass Graphite neck (1.5" nut) (with truss rod)
    * 2Tek bridge
    * 18V EMG-X MusicMan pickup, with Volume knob push/pull between HB and single coil
    * 18V EMG BQC 3-band preamp: stacked Midrange for frequency selection and cut/boost, stacked bass/treble cut/boost
    * Modulus hard-shell case

    * Very recently setup by my luthier, the neck has incredible buzz-free action

    * Trim plate for 2Tek bridge is included, I purchased it but never installed

    * 9.6 lbs on my bathroom scale

    * The bass has never left my house and is in near-mint condition, but I included a picture that shows a closeup of the small nick on the upper horn, below and to the left of the strap knob

    For what it's worth, I've owned a number of Modulus Quantum basses over the years and would honestly take this one over any of them

    Does that neck fit the neck pocket? Looks a bit off to me. But, a very cool looking bass. What's the scale length?

    The neck does fit the pocket, Modulus sold it as a Fender replacement. The scale is 34". Thanks,

    Yes, Warmoth's "sweet spot" is closer to where the regular MM position is, just a tiny bit north

    Ok, so that's closer to modulus' that is somewhere between p and mm. Nice top in a classic shape.

    Besides a post above raising concern that something is "off" with the heel, I also received a PM from someone saying he thought the strings are all too far to the right, as if the heel were crooked. When I took the pictures, I was moving all around the house to reduce glare, and in the pics above there was a window to the right and I angled the camera to the left, perhaps creating an optical illusion that the strings are off? Warmoth and Modulus would not create Fender-licensed products that would result in a bad joint. Here are a couple of pics taken of the string spacing straight-on:
