In the Peavey tradition, Zodiac basses combine sought-after features with the road-worthy durability required by serious rock players. Available in four-string versions, Zodiac bass guitars are built on a solid alder body with sculpted front and back contours and equipped with a stamped steel bridge, machined saddles and a three-layer pickguard.

Four-string Zodiac basses feature a combination of one P-style and one J-style pickup, while the five-string model includes two J-style pickups. Both models have two master volume controls and one master tone control for shaping the Zodiac sound.

Zodiac basses are outfitted with 8" radius maple necks so players can dig into the standard 21-fret rosewood fingerboards with comfort. These basses also feature all-chrome hardware, butterfly tuners and a Switchcraft jack.

Zodiac bass guitars will be available in Q3 2005 from authorized Peavey retailers.
