    NBD! Peavey Grind BXP for $40

    I previously posted about a Peavey Grind I bought at a local pawn shop for $40. Well, I took that killer deal and decided to use it to justify spending waaaay too much on a set of JBE pickups and a Darkglass preamp. This thing freaking SLAYS now.

    The darkglass preamp's bass/low mid/high mid control set up is great. I really like the 2.5k high mid boost in conjunction with overdrive. It really gives it a nice spank. Also, it came with two cool stickers to put on my control cavity cover. I especially dig the California cancer warning - makes the bass seem dangerous.

    The JBE pickups are also marvelous. This is one of the best balanced PJ sets I've heard. Considering I had previously dropped a set of GZRs in it, that's really saying something. The P pickup is pretty unique. It is not at as mid focused as other P pickups I have. The J isn't as nasally as other J pickups when solo'd, either. All in all, just a great set of pick ups
