- - Peavy Project
|BHester93 ||10-11-2013 09:11 AM |
So i was yard selling around just looking for oddities and i came across a literal walmart sack bass. the guy had taken it apart and tried to paint over the existing purple(with disasterous results) and it became too much project for him. so for 20 bucks i had all the parts for a peavy 4 string bass. but i thought why just put it together? why not do it better than that? so i ended up painstakingly hand sanding all the old paint of lf and redoing it with a modest semi gloss white. then i purchased a new bridge and some EMG PA V-3 pickups and it was on. i tried everything i could to whiten the pickguard. bleach, everythin under the sink, denture cleaning tablets.. you name it. but in the end i think it came out nice and oh my God at the output on those EMGs. its a screamer. but its very clear and very defined. overall it was a fun build and in the end was totally worth the work Attachment 367502Attachment 367503

I think the 'aged' white pickguard looks appropriate. Nice rescue

Great job! Good of you to recognize the potential. I love my Furys.
The aged pickguard IS perfect for it - Don't worry about it!

i was worried about it escpecislly since nothing i did could clean it but in the end i think the yellowed look went pretty well with the rest

There are several places you can send your old PG to and they will make you a new one just like it.
That said, a few quick coats of Krylon Fusion or some sort of epoxy paint in black on the PG would set the whole thing off and keep it in the spirit of a low buck revival bass.
Looks just fine to me, but everyone sees a thing in their own personal way.
