  1. A little. The G series were graphite necked basses. The Grind is a run of the mill import.

    It doesn't compare, not the same quality or near the sound IMHO.

    See if you can find a M92 or Sweetspot for about half the price. And if you want to you can add a second pickup for flexibility.

    Peavey basses that are US made are very good basses. I played a fury over a summer and it was a great P bass.

    Used to have that Q5. Sold it. Now I have five Peavey GV basses. They can generally be had for 1/4-1/3 of what I sold that Q5 for. They are every bit as good a bass.

    You didn't state in your OP, but I'm getting the sense that you want something right now?

    The GV's pop up in the classifieds every now and then - the last one being in January. Much like the growing consensus here, I believe they're the best alternative, but it will require some patience.

    I played one and was impressed. I'm just not a 35" scale person.

    My name is Lee, and I have a problem....

    It's not JUST those GV basses though. Also a millenium, a certain purple forum, two TL5s, a foundation.

    I have two moduli 5 and Genesis five, and last year I rocked a $60 peavey foundation with super ferrtires for every gig. Sounded great, but back to Genesis for this summer's tour. My buddy worked for Paevey in the 80's and said Hartley was a great and unusually guy.

    Since you've only been a member since Feb, we'll cut you some slack. Peavey USA basses are some of the most underrated basses in existence. I like it that way, makes them cheap to buy .
     
  19. The GV is a 5 string with 2 pickups. The G bass is a 4 with only one pickup. Not sure why they only did 1 pickup with the 4.
