1980s Peavy Basses

In the late 1980’s I bought my first bass guitar. I used it to commute from Athens, Ohio to Columbus (about 40 minutes) and play in A Cat Minority with Dave and Greg.

It was a Peavy Patriot Bass, which I traded in on a Peavy Foundation about 2 months later.

The Patriot only had one pickup and sounded about as good as you would expect it to. The Foundation was better, but still not great. You can hear it on Cave Droppings, and the other early ACM songs from the 80’s Columbus-era.

I have no idea what happened to the Foundation, but I might have traded it in on a Mesa Boogie bass amp, though I think it might have just been left somewhere.
