Default New Bass Day (by proxy) - 07-30-2009, 11:58 AM

This last Sunday was my daughter's 16th birthday.

About 10 days prior, I had some time to kill so I went pawn shopping.

I came across a Peavey USA Foundation bass in pearl white, with a maple neck. It's a little beat up cosmetically, had a sticker I needed to remove, and was missing a string. But it seemed to play OK. Here's some pics of similar ones:







Here is even a pic of a bald guy from Russia playing one:



It was tagged at $99. Seemed like it'd be a great birthday present for my daughter. She has been borrowing my basses, so this would be the first one that's all hers. I did a search and from what I'm seeing these are pretty well regarded, and I know from experience (I own a Peavey Predator Strat, a T-60, and a Fury I bass) that Peavey USA stuff is built like a tank.

So I went back the very next morning and bought it!

I kept it at my office until the actual day of my daughter's birthday, cleaning it up, removing the sticker, and replacing the missing string.

Here's her birthday:

Nice find Brian. My first guitar was a Peavey T-15 (six string electric) made in the USA and it was an awesome guitar, and you're right, they are built like a tank. I loved the headstock and maple neck too, they play nice and smooth. I miss that guitar!

By weird coincidence another bass exactly like it (even the same color!) came up on craigslist the very next week, for the same price, but with original hardshell case. If I had had a spare Benjamin I'd've bought the thing on principle!
