    PEAVEY, All KOA Wood, Unity Series® Bass Guitar-Awesome!

    Made in USA, Neck-Thru-Body, Rare, Amazing!

    For sale is my truly wonderful, Made in the USA, neck-thru-body construction, early 90s, Peavey Unity® Series, all KOA-Wood, 4-string Bass Guitar with gig-bag.

    I really thought I would never sell this great axe!

    This is the passive version which was upgraded from the stock passive pick-ups, to new active EMG pick-ups. (The original pick-ups will be included).

    The bass has minor wear of a 20 year old instrument, but looks absolutely great on the natural wood. (Got to love the natural organic oil and KOA wood!). Can not really see any of the wear in the photos.

    Only a few of these USA-made KOA Bass guitars were manufactured in the early 1990s, and this one is a true survivor in amazing shape. A very RARE bass that plays, looks and feels amazing.

    The bass was treated & finished with teak oil and waxed with Warwick wax, giving it an awesome feel, glow and sheen. Likewise, the bass was professionally set up and added a newer input jack & a new nut. Comes with Schaller strap locks.

    Serial # is: 05104048 (1990)

    Some more details:
    - Solid KOA neck-thru-body construction with purple heart stripes
    - Hand rubbed oil finish
    - Rosewood fingerboard with 8" radius
    - 34" Scale
    - 6 degrees Tilt headstock
    - 22:1 die-cast bass machine heads
    - 2 Split EMG pick ups at the neck
    - 1 EMG hum-cancelling pick up at the bridge
    - 2 volume controls/knobs, 1 master tone control/knob
    - Medium 1.6" neckwidth with wide radius back profile
    - All gold hardware
    - Solid milled brass bridge with saddle tracks
    - Currently strung with brand new Roundwounds (105s)

    The Peavey KOA Unity® Series manual can be found at : http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/80301425.pdf

    This is a true collector's and player's bass. Simply a wonderful bass all around that is sure to please. Will make someone very happy.

    Part of my 'thinning the herd' project, my loss = your gain. Worth a ton more..

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

    Thanks for looking. (Prefer a straight sale, but always open to a trade opportunity)

    Asking $545 o/b/o shipped CONUS

    The bass will be packed and shippe professionally.

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

    EMG P/J in a passive bass makes for a clear, tight, articulate low end that "takes EQ" really well. I bet the koa neck through warms the sound up nicely, too. I cannot get any more four stringers, but I like the look of this one, so a bump for you!
