I went by the local Peavey dealer today and picked up the latest "Monitor" magazine published by Peavey. Lo and behold, on page 31 they displayed two new basses. They're calling them the "Grind Bass BXP." Here's a few specs: Alder body, 24 fret Pao Ferro board, tilt headstock, 18 volt system, sculpted neck, string through body, on-board active or passive 3 band EQ with push/pull active treble boost, master volume and blend. 4 string version has a P/J configuration with hum-canceling passive pickups. List price is $1199.99. 5 string version has 2 passive hum-canceling J style pickups. List price is $1399.99. From looking at the pictures it seems that these basses have a serious MTD type vibe to them. That's a good thing to me as a recent purchase of an MTD Beast has really impressed me. On the other hand, my Cirrus and my Millennium have made me extremely happy also. If Peavey has incorporated a few MTD-like features into the design of this bass and if they construct them as well as they have done the Cirrus/Millennium lines, this could turn out to be an awesome bass for the money! Does anyone else feel the same way? Just when I thought that I was getting over G.A.S., I get hit with a major attack! It never ends. I wonder when they will be available? Peavey's new gear is really raising the bar. That combination of quality and value that they offer is hard to beat. If they keep this up I might wind up with most of my gear being Peavey. I'm pretty close to being mostly Peavey already. I'm haggling with that dealer on some cabinets. It's very likely that I'll wind up with two 410tvx cabs or a 410tvx/115bvx setup. Just change my TalkBass user name to the "Peavey Poster Boy." I'm not sure that Peavey would appreciate that though at my present skill level! L8TR!
