I was making the rounds this past Saturday and came across a 1980's Peavey Patriot with a natural oil finish mahogany body, I sold these back in the day at the H.O.G. The mahogany body is one of the more unusual and pretty rare. The bass was filthy they didn't even clean it off but I plugged it in and everything worked so I plonked down the princely sum of $99.00 and brought it home. ;D These basses are super well made and were designed to go head to head with Fender and import basses of the day. The two piece maple neck reminds me of a 70's P, not thin like a Fury. The neck is straight as a arrow nice fret work it needed minimal tweaking to get it adjusted to my liking. The Super ferrite pickup is plenty loud, I have yet to try it through a worthy amp. I remember selling these new for about $180.00 I think that was a bargain even back then. The Patriot like the Precision is a no frills simple bass but it's execution is near perfect and more refined that the Precision. Another stellar sleeper from Peavey.
