[FS] Modulus Graphite Quantum 5!

Post by swalexbass » 13 Sep 2018, 23:35

Hi Ozbass,

Here's something which you really don't see being sold often in Australia.

For sale is my 1999 Modulus Graphite Quantum 5. It features a beautiful carbon fiber neck, which not only looks amazing but really adds a special flavour to the tone of the bass. The tone is not like any other bass I've owned or heard - it's very articulate and well balanced as you'd expect from a high end bass of this caliber, but it's also very hi-fi and modern in a very good way. It's a super fun bass to play! Condition-wise, it's got some dings and signs of ageing which are shown in the pictures below.

For more information on these basses, check out the official site: https://www.modulusgraphite.com/quantum/. The street price for these start at 4,899 USD brand new, and with the upgrades it has (Quilted Maple top and Trans amber finish), it goes for around 6,000 USD (~8,300 AUD).

The price I'm asking for is $3,299 taking into consideration its age and some cosmetic damages (which don't affect playing at all). Prefer local pickup in Sydney but can also post elsewhere at the buyer's expense. Also included is the custom finger ramp.

Specifications:
Body: Alder
Neck: Graphite neck with bi-directional adjustable truss rod (I believe older models don't have it)
Fingerboard: Phenolic
Finish: Trans Amber, Quilted Maple top
Electronics: EMG Pickups with EMG 3-Band Preamp (killer tone!)
Hardware: Black Hipshot
