    Happy New Peavey Day to me! Picked this up at a local pawn shop for about $250 with the Peavey teardrop hard case. I've seen them go for less, but I've never seen this color on a bass, save for one. It was more common on the guitars.


    I haven't checked the SN yet, but its in great condition. There are some slight remnants of melted case foam (apparently common once Peavey switched from fully fabric lines cases to just putting foam to protect the body and neck). And the previous owner scratched his name (Derek) into the pickguard.

    I love my T40's, and I loved this color the second I spotted it, so it was natural to grow my Peavey family. The Super Ferrite pickup sounds awesome, and the location gives a little more honk and bite than a P bass.


    Photos don't do the color justice.

    Put some flats on that bad boy. Trust me
    on this.

    That color is close to mine. I painted mine
    with color shift though.

    Luckily it came with a set of Daddario Chromes installed. I usually prefer TI flats, but the Chromes work here.

    I like your color shift Patriot!

    Mostly, it's this color,


    But if bright light hits it,
    it changes more,




    I am surprised no one
    else has tried it. I get
    tons of compliments
    on it,

    Thanks Empty Cell. I got ROTO 77 flats
    on mine. When I put flats on it, it became
    so much more awesome.

    I love that color. I don't think I seen that color on a bass emptycell. I miss my old patriot even though I just picked up a foundation its not the same.

    Honestly, it took years before I fell
    in love with my Patriot. I'm sure glad
    I didn't sell it. The melting foam in the
    case ruined the original black finish.
    That's why I painted it.

    I've never seen that color like on
    Thedeadking's bass either. It must
    be rare.

    I love the cat's eyes and the skinny
    tale sticking out from behind the
