Best 5 string bass you've ever owned and why?

Nice bass!
Here is a simple solution for your "dusty bookshelf situation": place the books at the outer edge of the shelves; then you won't see the dust. ;)

I really like the sound of my 2004 Warwick Streamer CT (Chrome Tone)... Ebony fretboard gives it a very bright sound.

Re: the Modulus;

The consistency might also be partly due to the Phenolic fretboard.. 

My Yamaha had one, as does my Vigier, so that's a Maple/Phenolic combo and a 10/90 & Phenolic combo.

Both are great basses.

Agreed.  I am sure that is a factor.
