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, â€œI 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 nâ€™ 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 canâ€™t hear it?â€� Zodiac DE Scorpio Features
