For a modified Randall–Sundrum model (Jones et al. in Phys. Rev. D 88:025048, 2013), the graviton equations are derived and the mass spectrum found. The latter includes a massless graviton and a continuum mass with a gap. There is no negative mass-squared in the spectrum, so the model is stable. The gravitational Newtonian limit is obtained with an exponentially suppressed modification from the extra dimension.
