Peavey Grind 4 Bass Guitar

As the old saying goes, "what goes around, comes around."  My first guitar was a bass but I got rid of it after a short time for a number of reasons.  After over 35 years, I have gotten back into the bass guitar.  After jamming for some time with at least two different groups of people, I reasoned that there were always plenty of 6 string/rhythm guitars in the group, but never a bass.  I decided that would be my next "project."

In January 2005, I purchased this Peavey Grind NTB 4 bass guitar.  I am learning a lot with it, mainly because I have been playing quite a bit lately with some very talented and very experienced musicians.  Whether or not I will ever master it is not really an issue.  As I've said before, my main objective is to have fun.

I owned this guitar for over nine years.  During the time I owned it, it was one of two basses that I had, the other being the Hofner.  They were both easy to play but I always said that this one played, and sounded, like a much more expensive guitar.  It had great action and played very easily.  It was the one I went to when I did any recording work. 

The time came when I decided I wanted to invest in higher end bass guitars.  After buying the Fender Jazz, I started dreaming about buying a Gibson.  I soon realized that, although you can never have too many guitars, the reality is, I just didn't need that many.  I sold my Peavey in March 2013.  Our daughter-in-law, Mel, bought it for her brother.  It's new home is in North Carolina.
