Oh my GOD!!! You guys weren't kidding with all the stuff I've heard about these basses. This thing plays like a DREAM! Also one of the best sounding and looking basses I've ever played. I couldn't believe all the reviews I read on these basses knowing that it was a peavey but finally I just had to see for myself and I just got it to day and I am just blown away. WAY better than I expected! I love this thing! Just one question though. I want to switch out the control knobs and put some gold ones on there but I can't seem to get the black rubber ones off. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions? Thanks!
