    Why not just put another jack in there? You know, because sometimes you need a back up for those side mount barrel jacks... ;)

    My little Peavey collection...

    20190406_211322.
    20190412_180257.

    The black Foundation S was my first bass guitar from way back in high school. I bought it new in '86 so I could join the jazz band...

    The Tl-Five recently got an Audere Pro Z 4 band, which I love. (The stock Dyna pre has some janky pots, so it's safely stashed away for now, until I get brave enough to replace them.)

    The Cirrus 6 is the most recent addition - I stumbled across it recently on Reverb for what I thought was a pretty good price ($850 shipped with OHSC), so I jumped on it. (Better to ask the wife for forgiveness later...)

    I especially like the TL and 2 Cirrus basses! My dream Cirrus would have a maple board, like your 6er... preferably birdseye.

    6BC270BC-35A7-4D8E-826C-412C4BBA7B78. Cleaned it up, put the knobs on, made the jack work (I will mount it properly later), worked on some tuners that were wiggling (will fix those properly later, as well), and re-strung it with the Sadowsky set. It sounds so nice! The B sounds and plays very well too, better than some 35” basses I’ve owned.

    I tried hard, but I couldn’t resist buying some EMG 40TWs that were listed in the classifieds. They’ll fill up the nasty routes nicely and each pickup is switchable from single to dual coil. In the mean time, it’s playable as is, and I’ll have a blast until I make time to install the 40TWs.

    My long time tech got it setup in one day and it's already been on a gig, great bass everything I hoped for and more, it replaced a P bass.

    Here is my '83 T-40 and my new lighter T-40 made by TB'er buldog5151bass. Same Northern Ash as the bass, but this one only makes one note, but it is a sweet CRAAACK. The marks are from the dimpled rubber balls that the pitching machine was throwing. T-40s.

    I am wondering if a TL 5 will fit in the same Peavey hard case as a late model Foundation.

    My TL-Five *almost* fits in the "chainsaw" case that came with my Foundation S. The only significant issue is the G string tuner rubs the side of the cutout for the headstock. If the newer case will accommodate one of later model five strings (Foundation 5, Dyna Bass 5, etc.) then it should probably work.

    20190414_212930.

    FWIW, the TL-Five body shape/size has very similar dimensions/shape to the Foundation S/FL/Dyna Basses I have (although the TL-Five has an arched back and neck-through construction that the Foundations lack, obviously).

    Dang, I have a half a dozen Peavey guitars but no Peavey basses. I need short scale and none of the American-made Peaveys were.

    2B282A02-237D-4C1D-A021-548181A0BD8A. Capo = instant short scale bass! I’ve often wondered why more people don’t do this?

    Personally, the dots would confuse me. Besides, there aren't many gigging or recording players using the Peavey guitars I own - T-15's, T-30, T-27's, Horizon II. (Well, maybe the Horizon, but I ain't giving that one up, it's an amazing instrument.) But Peavey basses are still reasonably popular and effective as gigging and even recording instruments, so if I started collecting those I'd be competing directly with working musicians. I have an old Epi Violin bass which was mo' debinitely a rescue and an Ibanez MiKro which is delightful, and the ChiComms will make as many MiKros as people will buy. Generally speaking, I prefer that T-40 etc. quality of instrument to be gigging rather than sitting in my office - which is getting awfully crowded anyway. Kinda works out better for everyone this way, as I love my MiKro but I'd prefer playing it at home and seeing/hearing a T-40 being played on stage. Although full disclosure I am casually looking for a Peavey Patriot and maybe a Patriot bass, but those were student models and I don't feel like I'm competing with working musicians by buying those. There are lots of cool, collectible guitars and basses which aren't really in demand for working musicians.
