haha - good on him I reckon! I remember the feeling of saving up my hard earned student dollars and buying my first bass (no where as pro as the modulus though) - i love the "its got some sort of bartolini thing going on in there" (pointing to the pickup)

Man, I totally missed out as a kid. My first bass and amp were both crappy and I suffered away for years. If only I'd had a nice bass like that to start out on.

Hi yes I like the what the knobs do maybe bass , treble , volume etc.
Also what about the pegs they are Modulus or maybe not.
Look I saw good on the kid for the bass . He seems to play quite alright, but you think you wouls script the video & watch it before putting it on youtube

yea, but he isn't just starting out either. He said he's been saving for it for ages, he just doesn't know alot about it :p

It's got "Flea" written on it. That's all he needed to know!

I gotta be honest, when I was a kid I went and bought a Trace Elliot 2x10 cab and the only technical spec I cared about at the time was "Mark King used them". But I didn't video myself and say stuff like, "this neck is awesone - it's really easy to clean!" :)

Nice that he has a new bass, but in a seven minute review I learnt less than what I could learn with about 10 seconds of reading from the Modulus website. I mean you can't even get a good idea for what the bass sounds like because he's playing it with the volume so darn low. Kinda pointless really.

Level 42 fan spotted? ;)

My first bass was a piece of junk Jackson Charvel with a super high action & weak-sounding passive pickups. Still, it got me by for the first ~5 years...

I had a good laugh allright. At 3:45 "It's made of carbon fibre, this stuff is used to make knives or something" :lol I gotta say that after 18 years of being a chef, I never heard about carbon fibre knives before. :D

He's cool though, he sounds just like all the kids who work in music shops, he should get a job at Guitar Center :peep:

So when can I come over? I can jam on your basses all afternoon and then you can cook me a nice roast for dinner. :lol:

He'll sell it in a year. At least that's what I would have done :lol:

'THIS NECK, LOOKS AWESOME! IT LOOKS REALLY AWESOME?' HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

On a side note, I wonder if he actually practiced in that whole 2 years.
