    I have an old peavey foundation 4
    Black with maple board I just got back after 10 yrs
    Forgot how good it was the neck is so tiny !

    I'm hoping someone can tell me how old she is please I can't work out the dating on the peavey site

    Here is her #

    Your Foundation is a 1984. Great to re-discover.

    I've got about 10 Peaveys and I've called the factory for each and every one when I bought it and found that Wikipdia list is not all that accurate according to Peavey's records although the last time I called them about a bass they told me that they have a new database and apparently it may be missing older data.

    I have a 93 Foundation. The neck is tiny! 1.4" nut width. Never played anything else that narrow. It does feel good, though.

    Thanks for the heads up

    Have you by the off chance tried a pickguard on your foundation I know they don't come with one but I have started messing around with the idea

    I'll post a pic I made a prototype ( it's by no means final just messing with shapes ) just cheacking anyone out there has done this?

    My foundy is in really bad shape I went through a relic stage years ago and god for give me out lights in the neck markers on the fretboard
    I'll post a pic of that too ( I know I'm opening a can of worms here I destroyed a legend but she still plays great and everything works fine
    I also have 3 other basses so it's not my go to anymore

    Ok so I'm playing with a pickguard idea has anyone at all made a pickguard for a foundation bass?

    Yes I foolishly put lights in the neck 20 years a go/ and also thought relic basses looked cool so I did a bad job of that toodrool
