    Price:
    295 obo
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    Washington
    I recently picked up this beauty here:

    No longer available - Peavey Fury | TalkBass.com

    Awesome US-made P bass (almost vintage!) on the cheap!!

    I have owned several Furies and this is by far the nicest. These second gen Furies are the most desirable IMO. Awesome flamey maple neck with 1.5 inch nut.

    I can't say mint, but she's damn clean... Especially for a 28 year old bass! This closet queen obviously spent a lot of time in the case.

    The white finish is aging nicely. The rosewood fretboard is extremely rare and looks great.

    Just swapped old mystery flats for broken in TI Jazz Rounds. Sounds great with really low action! Will ship in bullet proof OHSC.

    I am only selling because I'm sensitive to weight and this one is just a little beyond my comfort cutoff. This bass weighs between 9 to 9.5 lbs. I tried to convince myself I could make it work... I'm destined to repeat some mistakes :)

    Send me an email address and I can shoot you a bunch of pics.

    Grab it before another peavey nut does!

    $295 + shipping OBO.

    So this one weighs 9 to 9.5 or it weighs more than that?

    9.2 lbs on my digital bathroom scale. Maybe I just need a new strap? Hmm.

    Considering an offer. Also considering keeping this sweet P bass.

    I had one of these in Sunburst - should never have sold it - the rosewood is so rare. Awesome!

    Starting to think I should just keep this one around. It is WAY too nice to give away. And it doesn't seem too heavy with my new Mono Betty strap.

    Thanks, I'm surprised it's still here too! It would be a great value at twice the price IMO.

    I've got one of these and it rivals my fender pbass. Some days I like it even more than my fender.

    Really only playing my Dingwall these days. It's a shame for this to continue sitting unused.

    Surprised a Peavey nut hasn't claimed this yet.
