2008 Peavey Grind Bass BXP NTB

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I bought the five string Peavey grind new two years ago and have been very satisfied. I am a gigging musician that plays both rhythm guitar and bass in small clubs and venues. I have owned more expensive guitars in the past but, the Grind has been a comparable bass to even my most pricey instruments. For its price, the Peavey Grind is work horse, perfect for taking on the road. It has been very durable and has never let me down. The tone of this bass is excellent, and it is quite easy to play. The neck is small compared to my last bass and easy to navigate. I do not have huge hands or long fingers, but the neck in quite narrow and the action is such that I don't have the famous forearm fatigue that sometimes plagues gigging bassists. The neck-through body is a gorgeous, layered natural wood with a clear finish. The neck-through body adds to the depth of the sound and gives the Grind amazing sustain. I have used the Grind for quite a bit of at home recording as well and it provides a nice, deep low end for my personal compositions. And while I don't usually run it through a lot of effects, when I have it has responded well. The build of the guitar is such that it is a bit unbalanced, a little body heavy, which can occasionally be a nuisance during live playing. I have also had some issues with the Grind staying in tune, but nothing that would make me consider a replacement. Also, the Grind does not have active pickups which could cause some issues depending on the type of music being played, but the neck-through body and beautiful design make it a great bass at a great price.
