    My sister bought this for me and fixed it up some.
    Had a custom pickguard put on, some chrome knobs, and a set of my favourite flats (EB 50/105).
    She said it was a little rusty but she did some cleaning and it looks fantastic.
    I have to say ive been playing this all day long and what an incredible bass!
    Low action with a slim neck and lightweight.
    Plays like an absolute dream and sounds terrific.
    I can see why these are such hidden gems.
    First bass i ever owned was a Fury, white on white.
    But never knew what i had being ignorant about basses and such at the time.
    This is a keeper.
    Thank you sis :D

    Just lovin this bass :)
    Very bright sounding when unplugged but when plugged in with tone at 50% its a very punchy sound.
    Two different worlds.
  6. Old US made Peavey basses are very underrated...I have a 90 Foundation with Super Ferrite pups, got it in a pawnshop for $160. Can't beat it.

    I have several T-40s you can beat, pretty much all you want, and do no damage to. :) It's most definitely the bass you want to be wearing if you ever have to swing your way out of a bar fight!

  8. A friend of mine swore that a Peavey was THE bass for rowdy punk shows 'cause the pointy headstock made a good defensive weapon.

    I'll bet it's a festivous miracle to have a cool bass guitar. Congrads on your latest purchase.

    P-bass style Fury basses are ridiculously good. Play it well!:bassist:

  16. I have a Peavey International Series Milestone II, just wrapping up it's 8th season in my hands. I believe it's the import version of the split-coil model Fury. Seems near identical to ones I've compared, and is a similar value. I have run across both locally on Craigslist and/or Music Go Round for barely over 100 bones. Especially worth considering if you want something P-like but a tad lighter than the average P. The bodies are thinner, but a slightly longer upper horn keeps the balance similar. The mini-pots are probably a cheaper quality, but in 8 years I have probably squirted cleaner in them once. Never had a bit of noise.

  17. One thing I really like about the Peaveys is the adjustable tilt neck-you can get it exactly the way you want it. Good wood and great necks, too!

    Good buy!
