    So you are talking about thickness.....front to back right? Just want to be sure I understand.

    Thanks! I'm really excited to get my hands on this bass. I usually play 5 strings but, for some odd reason, I really wanted one of these in a four.

    Actually it was the same thickness but the body on the one I have is wider from bottom to top of body....bass in playing position. It was not much but I did notice it when the basses were side by side.

    I was working on a Foundation I bought off Reverb and the truss rod nut was rounded off from someone using the wrong size wrench or socket. I had trouble getting it off but finally managed after I heated the nut with my soldering iron. I called Shannon at Peavey but they did not have the nut in stock. I then went to the local guitar tech to get a new nut but he had none.

    A little research and I found them online cheap so I will soon have some in stock and will be happy to send one to any of you that might need one in the future. It is the same nut Gibson uses.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I wanted the 4 with DeTuner 1st instead of the 5. I play both and bring 1 of each to every gig but I just wanted the 4 string 1st for some reason.

    Yep same size. I have a truss rod tool for a Gibson that I use if I need. The little routed channel is sometimes tough to get into but yeah, definitely Gibson stuff.

    Yeah, good idea. I had an import, ordered a US Mill preamp, direct drop-in. Was so worth it.

  8. Same pickups so you got yourself a slim neck bolt on Cirrus :thumbsup:

    The bass makes him look tiny.

  12. Console yourself with this thought. For a brief time you alone had the vision Peavey lacked :thumbsup:

    Nope. Perfectly comfortable typing this behind my keyboard in a warm comfortable secured office with three easy to access exits.
     
  15. Sensible approach my friend :D

    You're speaking Klingon, but I think I know what you mean. If you do, you'd have customers here.

    Agree 1000% percent. The Cirrus and Milli preamp (mostly Cirrus to me) is perfection. I've used it and VFL's on $2,000 custom builds and they sound KILLER !!!!

    The Palaedium that came today weighs 8 pounds 11.5 ounces. It cleaned up better than I expected it to. I put a fresh set of D'Adarrio XL's on it and did a set up and it plays great and sounds wonderful indeed. This thing really can sound a lot like a jazz bass with the bridge PU soloed but with no hum.

    The Foundation that also arrived today had a buggered up truss rod nut so it is sitting in the next room until a replacement nut arrives. I will shoot some photos of the Palaedium tomorrow when the sun is up.
