    Craigslist find. Purchased for the low, low price of $80. Scratchy tone pot & in desparate need of a setup. But I like it!

    Best $80 you're likely to spend on a bass. Great score!

    Yep, those early 90s Fury basses are a bargain at twice the price!
     
  5. You can't get hurt too bad for 80 bux.
    In this case you have scored a solid P ish bass that should be good for years of grins.
     
  6. Looks pretty much identical to the first bass I ever owned. Sold it in my late teens when I was living on my own and hurting for money. Put a lot of hours on that bass. Been thinking about picking up another but most of the ones I find are beat up or have the truss rod area and or string trees looks different. Would have been all over it for that price

    I've been on the lookout for a Peavey Patriot for a little while now, because that was the first bass I ever owned. The ones I've seen seem to run $200-$300 though, so I jumped on this Fury when it popped up.

    Great deal for one in that condition; I spent $80 on a total beater for a restoration project. Fine basses, thinnest fastest neck on a P bass, and the stock pick up is surprisingly good as well. Only complaint is the neck diving balance - fixed by a set of ultralites. Grab a can of contact cleaner for the pot and if your tuning heads rattle - superglue...amazing how well it fixes that.

    I have a real soft spot for the old Peavey stuff. My Foundation isn't going anywhere, ever.
