    Picked up a 1983 angled super ferrite Peavey Fury today for $50. Will post pic's this weekend when my daughter brings over her good camera. Anyway, I have a few questions about Fury's but, first I have to say that I can't believe how loud that one pup is. OK here are the questions I have. Was 1983 the first year for the Fury's? The serial number seems to indicate that it was made toward the end of '83 (serial 01699172). Second, on the entire back is a black, soft pad that seems to be glued on with two rivets at the top of the two horns. Was this a standard Peavey addition, a special order or did someone just add it?. Third, it had old flats on it and the open "A" is very dead, but the fretted notes on the "A" string seem to be fine. Is this a case of a dead string or could it be something else? Thanks

    Fairly certain the pad was added and is not standard. I'd see how it sounds with a new set of strings.

  4. Agreed, it looks like someone was trying to duplicate the pads that were on some Gretsch and Acoustic guitars. Great deal on that bass, the blue finish is really nice!
