    I know it's been said many times before that these classic American made basses get no respect. And that's a shame.
    Picked up #65 today .... Lovely old Patriot bass in really nice shape for almost 30 years old.
    It's joined in the group shot with other Peavey brethren (T-45, Dyna Bass Unity and book ended by two T40s ... I know why have two and I really meant to flip one but they have different pickups and nut composition and sound quite a bit different).
    Really the only basses that are on my wish list right now would be Peavey T-20 (hopefully burst) and an Ibanez studio bass. (although I'm sure I could always be tempted by something else).
    I was hoping for the Patriot Mahogany version but realistically shipping a $200 bass internationally just doesn't make a lot of sense fiscally speaking.

    I read "#65" and thought "Serial no. 65? Can't be", then I realized that it's your 65th bass. Which is awesome.
