    Found this '87 Peavey Dyna-Bass on CL. It's in good shape, and I was able to get it and OHSC for $200. It's my first black bass. Plays pretty good considering it needs a thorough set up - saddle spacing is off, string height is about 1/4", truss rod needs tightening, and I'll be adding a touch of tilt to the neck. Also, check out the strings on the pegs. They're pulled through the slots and cut with no more than 1 1/2 wraps. I'm undecided on what I'm going to string it with. Haven't plugged into my rig yet. But the guy I bought it from has a Fender Pro 210 combo, and it sounded good through that. I'll be taking it completely apart tomorrow for a deep cleaning because, well, that's what I do. I also got the double bonus in that the case fits my caseless T-40. It's like I bought a case for $100 and he threw in a bass for another $100. Win/win! The strange thing is that it is a 34" scale, but the neck feels short. o_O Must be me.

    Nice! Great amp as well. Must be a helluva job to transport that?

    I picked up a really beat up gray one for $75 just to take the pick ups and bridge for a new build.

    Got my tools ready for disassembly after brunch with the family.

    It tilts and rolls, like a hand truck. My 210 combo is 30 lbs lighter but tougher to move. The 2" casters can only handle very small bumps. I'm planning on building a pair of 15/6/1's this summer. I'll be putting some nice heavy-duty 4" casters on those. Going to try to attach a telescoping luggage handle to the backs of those, as well. We'll see.

    I had one of those back in the late 80's. The only bass that I still regret letting go of. Traded it in towards a Stingray.
