    Mr. FedEx man stopped by today and brought me my first bass. It's a 1984 Peavey Foundation in like-new condition. I did a little research and decided to go with this instead of something newer and maybe a little lesser quality. It actually looks better in person.

    Merry Christmas to me!!!

    I have 2 Mid 80s Peavey Foundation Basses. One I purchased new in the 80s and one used in the 90s as a backup. I have bought several basses over the years but the Foundation Basses are still my favorite to play.
    I have a Fat Finger on the Headstock of one to get rid of a slight dead spot found on neck - the C on the G string.

    Cool! You got one with the metal knobs and the old style extra heavy bridge! Nice bass. I used to play one just like that at a church I attended. One of the best sounding basses I have played. It was stolen, along with all of the rest of the music and PA gear when the church was burglarized.

    My church has spent a fortune on security and insurance. A few years before I joined all the portable instruments were stolen. A few weeks later they returned and stole the replacements and trashed a cello and grand piano.
     
  17. yeah, that is pretty shocking.

    wait, it wasn't a church of scientology, was it? ;)

    Nice sunburst paint job. That bass reminds me of my old Dyna-Bass 5! Are those the old Peavey "Super-Ferrite" pickups? Those are passive single coils, they used to sound great both maxed out on my Dyna.

    That Foundation is Made in USA I bet. Nice bass, great starter instrument. I think it will keep you happy for years, even when you've "upgraded" you'll like it.
