Wow! That's some kitsch right there!
Kinda cool headstock design, no need for string trees.
Expensive for something I don't recognize and looks cheap, but it looks funky in all the right ways; I'd rock that if it were a good player with a good sound.
Fury guitars was pretty much Canada's first decent guitar builder back in the 60/70's and the shop in which Sheldon Dingwall first learned the craft when he was starting out.
Not my favorite design but as a Canadian and Dingwall owner I can appreciate the history of this. It'll be solidly built, but I don't know if it would be worth 700 bucks.
There's more than one of these??
In person, it might be the last design you'd ever see.
Unique that is!
Fury is the original Canadian electric guitar builder. Est. 1962.
That's an LS4 bass probably dating from the late 60's or early 70's. Super solid build, ultra thin neck profile, slightly shorter scale IIRC. everything except the tuners and screws was fabbed in the Fury shop or built to their spec.
The concept behind the headstock was "what would it look like if Picasso were to draw an upright headstock?". From that perspective I think Fury hit the target dead on.
Back in the day these were a pretty popular bass.

Wow that belongs in the ugly bass's thread.
Anything to do with Godin? Same offset fret markers.
I'm not a fender fan, but I have to admit anything that get's too far away from the basic P bass design imo looks butt ugly and just wrong.
That thing looks like it would eat small children.... Scary stuff...
Sci Fi in real life. Kinda' coolish!
This thing belongs in the depths of the internet...where goatse lives...
Looks like it was designed by a small child.
There's a damn good chance that it's a great player. Just look at the player wear.
See the Dingwall website home page and look at the sample basses in the top banner as they cycle through. Just one of several marker styles they offer, of course, and you'll note that those markers have been moved to the lower edge of the fretboard. Better look, in my opinion. As for the Fury body style...um...I'll take my Super J.
