    I have a Modulus Q5 with EMG pickups and want to know what the preamp is. Is there a way to identify it myself or do I need to contact Modulus?
     
  2. What's your knob configuration? If you have four, two regular and two stacked, V/P/stacked bass-treble/stacked mid-sweep,...then you've probably got the EMG BQC pre,...which would make you a very lucky man,..my fav configuration on a Mod. If that's not your config,...then I probably won't be much help.

    It's a Sweet Spot with three non-stacked knobs. I've seen a couple of Q5's with EMG pickups and an Aguilar preamp... sounded awesome! I'm hoping mine has something cool in it!

    How would you ID an internal preamp in any bass?
