    Peavey USA Foundation lined fretless. Appears to be factory lining. 1994 model per headstock serial number when referencing the Peavey wiki.

    I picked this up a little while back thinking I would experiment on fretless. Sounds great just definitely not my thing.

    Has the transitional Super Ferrite pickups. Tight neck pocket. Light weight. Some light scratches on the body and a couple significant nicks pictured. Tuner hardware has some dulling. Still has the older set of strings that I got it with. Lighter gauge with purple silk. Not sure what kind they are.

    Photos from my iPhone. Sorry I don't own a nice camera.

    Preference would be a local Dallas-Fort Worth trade or sale. Trades I would find useful:

    4 string jazz bass
    4 string p/j with jazz width neck
    Sansamp Bass programmable
    GK MBE extension cabinet

    Outright local cash sale for $130. I don't have an adequate shipping box or I'd open up to shipping CONUS.

    I'm willing to add cash depending on trade.

    Bump.

    I've received a few shipping requests so I'm tracking down a box. In the meantime I'm still open to a local sale or trade.

    Bump. Rumor of a box at work. I'm going to check tomorrow... If so, $150 CONUS.

    Hey man,

    Did you end up selling this? Sent you another PM, hoping you got that box. I REALLY want this, and I'm more than willing to pay a bit extra for it... Just need to know if you're serious about selling it, or if I should stop waiting and buy something else ;)

    There have been no local offers but a number of serious offers for CONUS shipping. I have now obtained an appropriate shipping box and will acquire some good packing materials in the next day or two. It should be ready to ship off to a happy buyer by the end of this week.

    I will now begin working down the list of responders. Thanks for being patient. Between an insane amount of work hours, family illnesses and obligations my plate has been full.

    I'm local and would like to buy the Peavey Foundation fretless if it is still available.

    Thanks.

    Work hasn't had jack squat for shipping materials. I made a run to Walmart and about had a heart attack when I found out how much that junk is.

    This box I have is too big and requires too much packing material to keep the bass safe. Sorry I don't keep stuff around to ship large objects. Looking at alternatives...

    Try your local GC or Sam Ash. If you ask nicely and the guy isn't a total douche, they'll give you a box.

    Is this bass still available, and are you still offering $150.00 shipped?

    Thanks for the inquiry. I had no shortage of distant TBers interested in this bass and I appreciate it all. I never did come up with the right kind of shipping materials, at least something I was comfortable with. For a higher dollar bass I could have invested in some and afforded the expense. I ended up sticking with my initial plan of a local sale.

    The bass was just sold to a local TBer on Friday.
