    very heavy, good tone considering the low price. that looks kind of like a fretless conversion, it's hard to tell... :confused:

    They're actually VERY good basses. I've only played the fretted version though.

    It is a fretless (look under the picture).

    I just bought this a few days ago. I've never seen one but understand Peavey made them from 82-87. It is a great, great instrument.
     
  6. I think what FNA meant was that it looks like it was originally fretted, and subsequently defretted and the fretslots filled-
    hence what look like lines in the fretboard (a factory lined fretless would have light-coloured lines), and face dot markers fitted centrally as on a fretted are rarely used on original factory fretless basses.

    It's original. I sent the serial number to Peavey to verify before I bought it.

    Here's a closeup of the fretboard:

  9. :oops: I stand corrected - the FL designation seals it.

    looks like the lines have just become dark through playing.
    are those flatwounds?
