    I'm hunting around to find a cheap but fairly well made Precision bass...and I found my church mate playing an old Peavey Fury IV.

    Now I'm interested in P-bass knockoffs made in the 80's/90's that would fetch a cheap price...can anyone name a few more for me to hunt around for?

    i have a peavey fury (1), its got a perfect precision sound, just what youd expect a p to sound like.

    pretty cheap too

    Another vote for a Peavey Fury. One of the best necks I've played on.

    You can get a 70s Ibanez Silver Series (lawsuit era) for a few hundred (by which I mean, under $400).

    I got my '78 for $225 and it plays wonderfully.

  8. Also consider Hondos. Even the ones with the plywood bodies play well and sound great but they also made some higher end, wood bodied ones as well.

    My Hondo Fame will hang with ANY good P bass :bassist:

    I'd post pics but the new TB photo size restrictions are preventing me :rolleyes: Sheesh......and I have a gold star too :meh:

    Edit: Here's links to photos posted here before the new photo size laws:

    I have had a few over the years. Including Japan Fenders.

    77 Memphis P bass 60$ off Craigs. This one is special 8.2lbs and plays like buddah~!
    77 Ibanez P/J $125 off Craigs - nice bass but we did not get along

    Early 80's Hondo II $30 off craigs - this one sounds and plays great but is 11.4 lbs
