New Modulus Genesis 2T

I just picked this baby up after wanting one for a long time. It's a Modulus Genesis 2T in green stone quilt. The neck has a carbon graphite spine sandwiched by a granadillo fingerboard and a cedar back. Two Air Classic humbuckers with a Yamaha 24 pole 5 way switch. The fretwork is impeccable; it rivals the Vigiers I've owned. Straploks are actually embedded into the body, sweet! The construction of the neck creates sustain that makes you think there is a Sustainer on board.

Anyone else ever get a chance to play one of these beauties? BTW, the pic of the body is horrible. The green is very deep and the finish is like glass.

Nope I've never had the opportunity to play one of these, I don't suppose many made it over here.

One thing that's always bugged me, was the fact that on such an otherwise gorgeous instrument they never did anything with the headstock. It's almost like it's left bare so the black stripe is on show as if to say "look at our shiny technology" They always appear to have fantastic figured woods though and I bet it sounds great

I've had a couple of Genesis models....GREAT guitars! Modulus' main rep is a really good friend of mine, and always has cool stuff at his house (which can be dangerous!) Modulus' guitars have come a LONG way...the Genesis models are the ultimate! Gorgeous top on that one, man. Good score!

Jono - the headstock is actually lacquer over cedar, it's not bare. The entire back of the headstock is graphite. I'll take more pics of it as soon as I go out and get the 700 batteries my digital camera needs to saty alive for more than 3 minutes
