This bass was specially designed by Peavey in consultation with Rudy Sarzo. It was apparently inspired by an Alembic Rudy had played. I reckon this sounds and plays fairly similar to my Alembic, serious buyers are welcome to try and compare. It is also quite similar to the classic neck through Aria SB Elite range, but this bass has a greater range of tones and even better hardware etc. ARIA also later produced a very similar Rudy Sarzo model
Very good condition for a late 1980s vintage classic. There are a few minor surface scratches on rear of body and a few tiny dings here and there, an area of wear on the heel of the body, which I have tried to show in photos. No buckle rash. The original plastic battery cover clip has been replaced by a screw on cover plate.
This is one of the very best build quality basses I have seen or owned over 45 years playing and trying numerous basses. Plays like a dream. Build quality blows Fender, Gibson, Musicman, Rickenbacker, Warwick etc away.
This was the forerunner to the Peavey Cirrus series. The high spec neck-thru-body USA made versions with comparable features were circa €3000.
