    Well, I've decided to limit myself to three basses. My new one came in and I've decided this one has to go.

    It's a 1992 Peavey Fury (made in USA!) with an EMG pickup strung up with flats.
    Some might consider the EMG a con, but it really does sound good.
    (The EMG is active, see post #12 for pictures with the guard removed.)

    Since I've had this bass, I've gigged it probably no more than 10 times, otherwise it's been in a case or hanging on my wall.

    It has excellent playability. Nice action, the neck feels great.
    In fact, the neck is my favorite part of this bass. So smooth. :hyper:

    There is an occasional rattle when really digging in. I suspect the nut is to blame but you can only tell when playing unplugged.
    Otherwise it sounds really nice. It's got a great thumpy, warm sound when I run the tone low and some nice defined punch at full.

    It has a fair share of blemishes for being 20 years old.
    Some small chips and scratches near the bottom and by the top strap peg, though they are hard to see, unless you look very close.
    There is one spot that, I think, goes through to the wood, but it looks like it was covered with whiteout or something.
    I would give the body a 7.5/10.

    There is a small nick or two on the back of the neck as well.
    It doesn't/wouldn't bother playability. Neck is probably 8/10.

    I like how your dog is trying to camouflage itself into the carpet in the first photo.

    Oh, and nice bass at a good price! GLWTS!

    [DEL]It's a passive pickup.
    I didn't put the EMG in, the last owner did that.[/DEL]

    The pickup is active, I was wrong. See later post for pictures.

    Haha. Thank you!

    What's the width of the nut and string spacing on the bridge?

    Nut = 1.5",
    Bridge String Spacing = .75"

    (I PM'd the same questions)
     
  10. There's a battery in there somewhere - that's an ACTIVE EMG pickup, not an passive HZ one.

    Could be you simply haven't had to change the battery since you got it? Completely possible. Could be somewhere under the pickguard.

    Well you guys sure know your stuff.
    Popped the pickguard off and I was pleasantly surprised.
    Very clean fit.

    Um, 2 and 3/8" at the 21st fret.
    I measured straight accross the fret.
    Is that basically what your were asking?

    Nice! Free bump for the first bass I ever owned! I really wish I didn't smash mine on the school stage during a talent show rendition of "smells like teen spirit" in high school. Wow I was stupid when I was young! GLWTS!
