    Fretless Peavey B-Quad Bass (Gorgeous Transparent Blue Finish)

    Everything works. Electronics are original and fully functioning. And it is a fretless. You can pan the strings across the spectrum, engage the piezos in the bridge, and enjoy the glorious tone variations of the magnetic pickups. And the graphite neck is super-fast.



    The fretless version is very rare in general, and even more rare is to find a B-Quad that is fully functional and has not had the electronics replaced..... And the blue finish is gorgeous.




    Peavey B-Quad 4 bass. This was Peavey's top of the line bass in the early '90's, and was co-designed by Brian Bromberg.


    Graphite neck


    18 volt electronic preamp that has both magnetic and piezo pickups which can be used independently or mixed


    The VFL Humbucking pickups can be adjusted to run in stereo mode with separate dual outputs and each string can be panned to one or the other stereo outputs for unique effects.


    Includes original case.

    I forgot to mention you can string the bass up as normal; or as tenor bass; or as a piccolo bass; or you can use bronze strings because of the piezos... A very versatile bass.


    As noted above, a B-Quad fretless is very rare in general, and even more rare is to find a B-Quad that is FULLY FUNCTIONAL and has not had the electronics replaced..... And the blue finish is gorgeous.

    $1300

    STRAP NOT INCLUDED


    Buyer pays shipping.

    Hello All,

    I think I want to keep this one. It took years to find... I guess it is a case of seller's remorse caught early. I will repost if something changes. Thanks for your interest.

    Somebody buy this!

    You won't find anything equivalent at 2 or 3x the price, maybe any price. The 1994 MSRP was $1999.99.

    I own five of these, 4 & 5 string, fretted and fretless. Still looking for one in the natural finish, preferably 5 string fretted.

    These are fabulous instruments. The most sensitive and tactile instrument I've ever played. You can make music just blowing on the strings.

    As mentioned, you can use pretty much any kind of strings because of the piezo saddle pickups, nylon, cat-gut, whatever.

    The neck is so stable you don't have to worry about the action changing with different string type or gauges, or weather conditions. I had some of mine in storage for 10 years. When I took them out they were still in tune!

    Believe me, Mr. The Balance will soon regret selling this. :woot:
