    This is a georgous late 90's TL-5 with the original Cirrus pickups and preamp.
    This bass just cooks the greasy fat off the bacon for tone, diversity and playability.

    The bass is a pure USA made unsung gem. They were around $1700 10 years ago and are very close to a Cirrus as can be seen from the photos.
    I must sell it because it is blue. I cannot play a blue bass anymore... not for live work.

    Sounds odd to some perhaps... but honestly I would trade this directly with a TL-5 in honey or brown burst.
    My mojo is being thrown off with the color. That is just the honest truth.

    34" scale is very fast and silky. With very low action and not a single buzz.
    Beautiful ebony fretboard. Very little fret wear.

    I bought this here on TB from Quadzilla 3 months ago to record with.
    The bass has since had a very thorough cleaning and given much love and attention any high-quality bass deserves.
    Any screws with wear or rust were replaced with the exact part from Peavey.
    The mid shift pot was also replaced with a direct original part from Peavey.
    The truss rod wrench (Peavey style) was also gotten directly from Peavey...
    (That was all work that needed to be done immediately after I bought it). And I will still ask less than what I paid here.

    There are usual wear marks for a 10 year old bass and there is one small mark near the head stock tip and lower side of the bass which I have shown in the pics. There is one black screw missing from the back control plate (arrived here to me like that). I ask to get it from Peavey but they forgot to send it with the others. You can see it in the pic of the back.

    I adore the tone and playability very much and only hope I don't regret letting it go due to the Blue color.

    I have recorded 19 songs with this TL-5 bass in 2 months.

    Here are 3 recent audio samples of this TL-5..
    I picked these three to show the diversity in tone from one bass

    These are all raw unmixed and unmastered.
