    Last I heard, Flea stopped endorsing them (we're talking about Modulus, right?), so they're calling them something else...

    Nope. A new line started by the man himself, it's actually called Fleabass

  9. I flat refuse to start this up again. For 500 bucks you could do better IMO.

    So you've played one then?

    The blue and orange one was so rad I crapped my pants.

    No that's not the point, but a few months ago people were talking about them, and now it seems everyone forgot about them

    I just received my MusiciansFriend catalog yesterday (with all of SIX whole pages for the bass section!) and they're in there. Still $500.

    Calling it Model 32 makes me think 32" scale, but no its 34"

    Rather lame for $500. One soapbar, volume and tone controls, 20 fets. Seems like an overpriced Squier really.
