How do standard techniques translate to the Modulus? The string spacing is crazy tight!

Thanks! I play mostly by fingerstyle. Picking has mostly been reserved for when my right hand is bleeding and no longer numb (2nd set after the break) :D I have small hands as well... Slapping? Fugedaboudit...

Thanks!

Frankenwood:

It's the Opus Frankenwood 5 in my sig. I bought it from a guy who had it custom built for him by a local Luthier named Dan Jones. He couldn't even tell me what all the switches were when I bought it. It has a BQC system in it, and I believe that the monster pup is a triple coil something or other (please let me know if you have any idea - the main reason I guess this is that there are faint impressions making 3 distict zones on top). The switches (I think) are series/parallel, and pickup selectors. The black one is for the LEDs in the side of the neck (red). The knobs are Vol, Blend, Treb, Sweepable Mid, Bass. The actives are 18v and the LEDs are 27v. It looks very wierd and has many types of wood in it, but plays like butter and has a very wide variety of voices. The mwaaa is beautiful and very pronounced whereas, the G&L doesn't have the mwaaa at all...

Nice set of axes, although I wouldn't die for them! :D

 

What's that Daisy Rock thing goin' on with the Tele?

 

I'm weird, I know. But I actually am very intrigued by both the Telecaster and the Paul. In fact, I really like that Paul.

Yep. I'm the other voice in the head of davebrownbass.

Thanks Dave! I wouldn't go so far as to die for them either... ;) The Tele was my first bass and only bass for 7 or 8 years. The stock sound is pretty much mud, so I added the jazz pup and blend knob when I was 16. This gave me a much wider tonal variety for not much cash. The stickers & stuff were various stages of its mojo infusion. (I assume that's what you meant by Daisy Rock thing...)

As for the LP, it's a Mako knockoff - model 56. It's very nice and plays well... I've had it also for quite a while...
