  2. Looks sweet. I've never even seen one in person. Exactly how rare are these. A quick Google for sale search pulls up precisely zero. .?? How long did they make them.

    That bass is clean like an Alembic and I always love the sound of agraphite neck.

    Keisel/Carvin makes that design now. Wonder how they compare??

    Those are nice. I just can't get past the Keisel brand logo.

    They were not made for long. I know at least one TB'er has the five string version.

    Huh. I didn't even know these were originally made by Peavey. I only knew about the Carvin version.
     
  8. Brian has had deals with a handful of companies making his design over the last 30 years or so. I think when the Peavey came out, it was the first time I heard of him and that design.

    Great basses; stereo outs, piezo pups, modulus neck, and the body fit real nice. They where only made for a brief moment, mos-def the "unicorn" of EBG's.

    I gotta admit, that’s a beautiful-looking and beautiful-sounding bass!

    One of few basses I own that I didn't feel like it needed a an improvement in pickups or preamp. They sound awesome to my ears.

    Although there were a lot of rare, limited run Peavey basses, I say the Bromberg is the unicorn of Peavey basses because it is the only that really commands boutique level prices.

    Well, he's not lying about them being some of the baddest basses out there. They rarely come up for sale.

    As the owner of a Peavey and several Moduli, it's definitely the coolest Peavey out there!
