    4 string
    Red Sparkle finish (rare)
    graphite neck
    Pau Ferro fingerboard
    3 band active EQ
    18 volt electronics
    35" scale
    gig bag

    I can't say enough good things about this bass. I got rid of my Modulus Flea bass after I played one of these. They have a better fingerboard (I like the Pau Ferro more than the graphite), you can actually adjust the necks, and the electronics are better (3 band instead of 2 on the Flea). This is a fine example of the breed and is set up to my exacting specs. It is currently strung with new GHS brite flats. This thing is a funk monster.

    $250 shipped to lower 48. No trades please.

    Sorry guys, I'll get some pics up later tonight.

    Yeah, I felt bad sending my $1200 ($2,400 list) Flea out to the 'bay, (especially because is was finished in the rare purple sparkle and had the lane poor pickup) but I couldn't get over how much I dug the G bass more. It just feels more organic while possesing the stability and tone of graphite. Plus that midrange on board is a huge plus. I would say fit and finish between the two are identical. Those guys at Peavey USA know how to build a bass.

    Come to think of it, I did like getting $900 in cash from the Flea, and only spending $350 on the G. That's $550 left over for drinkin!

    I'm doing mostly upright stuff now, so I don't need it anymore. :crying:

    Alright, I lowered the price to $250 for a quick sale. You guys are killin' me... A bass this good shouldn't be going for this cheap... Too bad Peavey doesn't get the respect they deserve.

    The G bass is sold! Thanks for the interest everyone. These are awesome basses, anyone interested in a graphite neck funk machine should look them up!
