Well, I bought this bass roughly 7 months ago, and said then that I'd give a review ish thing later. Well, it's now later, and here it is. I play this bass through an Acoustic B320 head, with a Pevey 4x12 cab. After doing alot of fiddling with the EQ & gain, just yesterday I nailed down the Entwistle sound. I have my EQ set mostly flat...but hey, enough about the amp right? The bass Peavey Koa RSB s/n 06867491 (or at least that's what it looks like. Body: Solid slab of Koa Neck: Flamed maple, 24 fret, pau ferro (sp) board Electronics: Peavy VFL pickups, active, vol/bla/tone, no preamp Price: $200, used As I said I simply love this bass. I can get alot of Fender sounds, a solid P bass along with a jazz. I can also get somewhat unique sounds, which I've endeavored to get. It has a very, VERY fast neck, but somewhat thin for my hands. It's not crampt or anything, but a tad larger wouldn't hurt. Getting to the highest of frets comes at an ease as well, I can groove on the 20-24 E with no trouble at all (though who really uses those frets...). Before I bought this bass, I've never even heard of Koa wood, but now I know that I lvoe the tonal qualities that it brings out in a bass. That matched with the maple neck & pau ferro (sp?) fretboard make this bass prefect for eveything I play; light jazz through some modern metal (though nothing of the likes of KoRn and the such). The string spacing is wonderful whether you use a pick, or finger style. The strap buttons on it are even a plus. They have a design like I haven't seen before, and I don't use straplocks; even when I have my four year old strap on it! The gold hardware on this bass brings out the beauty of it as well. Another thing I like about the bass, is yet another simple thing; the inlays. They're not simple cheapo peral ones, they're the abalone ones, and are set in nicely! When it comes to comfort this bass leaves nothing behind either. You can play this bass sitting, standing, laying down, however, and it's comfortable in any posistion. All in all I give this bass a 10. It is the best bass I've played, ever. When I play it, I just love the sound thats emitting from the amp; it blows me away that something so wonderful has come from a company who seems to get little respect that they certainly deserve (and this bass definitly shows this quality!). If I saw or heard of another one for sale, I would buy it in a heartbeat, even though I have one, because it's simply THAT GOOD. Am I saying it's right for everyone? Certainly not; nothing is. But this bass sure does cover alot of ground, and also explores some new. I'll enclose two different pics of the bass. I hope you guys enjoyed this review, though it's not that good of one. _Ray_ P.S. anyone know if Peavey made these in a 5 string version?
