NAMM06: David Ellefson Signature Bass From Peavey

Peavey have introduced the Zodiac DE Scorpio, the first signature-model bass guitar in the Zodiac Series. Designed with veteran metal bassist David Ellefson, Peavey Zodiac DE bass guitars feature both J-style and P-style pickups.
David Ellefson had this to say about the new model, “I wanted to create a bass that incorporates the best sound qualities of a traditional instrument but also has cutting-edge features designed for modern players. My technique and playing style have always demanded more from a bass guitar to really capture the power and depth of my music. The Zodiac DE brings those elements together in one powerhouse instrument. Rock n’ roll is about constant reinvention and taking things to new extremes, and the Zodiac DE reflects my passion for that lifestyle. I like the bass to be heard as well as felt through the music, and after all, what good is a fancy bass if you can’t hear it?�
