Well, I've had this bass a while but have been busy with other things so I finally am getting around to cleaning the pots, input jack and everything functions fine. Great playing & sounding bass thru my USA David Eden 'the metro' 2x12 combo (but I am a newbie to bass). Anyhow, I do NOT have an original case so I called around to some dealers (some of which sold these Foundations new) and was surprised when I heard some of the comments. "You probably don't want to spend much for a case on a $200 bass". "Do people still want these, the new import Peavey basses are nicer overall". OOOKKAAYYY.....you know I have collected old USA tube gear for the last 25+ years and have bought and sold many nice older Fender guitars....not many Peaveys I admit. But dang, I thought many of the USA Peavey Foundations were highly regarded and some Peavey basses were considered to be "high end" so to speak. "$200".....I don't think I would ever take $200 for this bass...I don't even know if I would entertain $300 to be honest. Years back, bass players told me these were up there with USA Fender basses, no?
