    This was actually a gift I got for my fiance a while back. Previous to this instrument I picked up a Modulus Quantum, but she never got along well with the scale length.

    I packed up the Modulus and we went in search for her "perfect" bass. I must admit, we both fell in love with this thing. I'm definitely not a bass player, but I'm completely digging the tones and overall feel of the instrument. I thought the Modulus played extremely well, and this bass feels right up there with it. For my taste (and more importantly - hers) I also prefer the tones from the Music Man.

    I would like to have kept both....the Modulus definitely had a beautiful clarity and depth, especially on the low B string. This bass is better at getting at the "heavy" stuff.


    This is one of our engagement pics with the bass.....obviously the best pic because my ugly face isn't visible. ;)

    Nice Bass...

    I have a black one with a maple neck just like it.

    It growls, it slaps and pops like a StingRay should...

    Nice neck...great bang for the buck!

    You have a lovely fiancee.

    Congrats!

    Wasn't there a thread about hot chick bass players?

    You should add her to that list! She is beautiful, hold on to that one!

    And the bass is nice too, but I am partial to MM!
