So today I was talking to a couple of my friends and casually mentioned that I had just started playing Bass again. I don't even know how it came up in the conversation we were having. Well one of them says hey my brother has a bass guitar he hasn't played in several years. I asked what it was and he said he would call his brother and ask him. He called his brother and it turned out to be a "Made in the USA Peavey Foundation"
. His brother said if I wanted to come and get it I could HAVE IT
. Needless to say I couldn't get there fast enough.
I am now the proud new owner of a white USA Peavey Foundation. The bass was pretty dirty and missing two of the knobs. It also needed a set up done on it pretty bad. I looked up on how to adjust the truss rod and came across an owners manual on the internet. I said what the heck if I can fix Jets for 30 years I can surely try and set up this bass. Well after some adjustments on the truss rod and a neck pocket adjustment I am in business. I put on a set of Rotosound Stainless roundwounds and it sounds great. It has some dings and scratches on it but heck for free I ain't going to complain. I know picts or it didn't happen.

Very nice. But tell me-----with that big headstock and all---
(1) does a Foundation neck dive at all? (2) Any jazz tone to them naturally with those pickups?

Big hoo-ahh on that bass score and I gotta say there is nothing more satisfying than doing your own (read: personal) setups. Enjoy and display Peavey Pride!
