Yeah, wow, that's a nice one. Congrats to all concerned. I will admit that I noticed you (MK) had snagged it from that guy on the other forum and figured that was the one at issue, but did not want to blow its cover since there seemed to be a reluctance to display it prior to the sale for whatever reason.

Anyhow, killer-looking guitar, for which, as a new Modulus owner myself (I bought the hardtail that was on ebay not long ago), I now have a great appreciation. Love these necks--the shape, the flat radius, the beefy frets, the generally solid as a rock feeling. If anyone out there is on the fence about grabbing one, go for it. They really are unique and worthwhile.

Yes, my bass player alerted me to this guitar that was on the Alembic site. It's a really nice guitar and I only sold it because I'm very happy with my Ibanez-era Bobby sound and have little inclination or time to consider anything else right now. The Blackknife is light and extremely comfortable to play. The neck is a real treat. The pickups are completely different from what I'm used to and that's when I realized that I didn't need another time-consuming project. I suspect with the right gear, it will work nicely for Bob's Modulus era.

On a serious note,.. This is probably my 8th or 9th Blackknife. Every single one that I've owned has sounded different than the other. You've got to love the necks on these guitars. They're so smooth and slick. I'm excited about this one. It's definitely a keeper.

Is it a neck thru? Is Rich Hoeg still building you a blackknife copy?

oddly enough, no, it's not neck-thru.

Yes, Rich is still building me the other one

Here's mine, also a bolt-on:

Notice the H-H-S Jerry-style pickup arrangement. I haven't pulled the pickups, but they look to be Dimarzios. Kind of a hybrid Jerry/Bob guitar.

Yes, that's the one from ebay about 10 days ago.

It's loads of fun. A little Bob, a little Jerry--not perfect on either count, but a great sounding, great playing, very versatile axe nonetheless. One of the cool things about these Modulus guitars is that each seems to be a little different. Dozin said he'd had what, like 8 or 9? Probably no two identical.

WOW!!! just got the guitar and WOW. Pictures don't do it justice. This Knife is SUPER nice. I like it better than my Signature one. Absolutely Beautiful. The original owner obviously didn't play this thing. I don't even see any signs of fret wear. Awesome :peas: Thanks again MK!!!
