Final Price Drop to £1,900.
I'll probably live to regret this one but here we go!
Up here is my 1997 Modulus Flea in silver flake finish.
Full spec below:
Silver flake with matching headstock
Headstock with "Flea" decal
Lane Poor pickup
Early version with no truss rod
Jim Dunlop strap lock buttons
Neck and fretboard are unblemished, as straight as it should be. Action set low to medium
This bass came to me in 2012. It had several loose frets. I took it to luthier Andrew Guyton, at Guyton Guitars in Suffolk, and we decided for a complete re-fret. Andrew is probably best known for the authorised reproductions of Brian May's Red Special guitar; see here. Andrew also replaced both tone pots and repaired the cracked lugs of the Lane Poor pickup casing.
In terms of overall condition there are few minor dings to the edges of the headstock and a couple on the body, but barely noticeable. This is an extremely clean example for a 24 year old bass.
The tone is immense and cuts through anything. The sustain goes on forever. The funk levels will blow your mind, especially with new strings.
The bass comes with a new set of Modulus Graphite nickel roundwound strings (105, 85, 65, 45) and new 9v Duracell battery.
Original hardshell case which is a bit battered at the corners but is secure with all fastenings working correctly.
Original warranty card and handbook included.
Looking to move this iconic instrument on as I have just taken ownership of a Modulus Revolite Funk Unlimited, so the Flea has become surplus to my requirements yet needs to be played and enjoyed.
The only trade I would consider is a 1976/77 all original pre Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray.
Thanks very much for looking.
