Peavey Forum

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by groove_druid, Jan 6, 2012.


  1. Hi all,

    Picked up a candy apple red Peavey Forum today. MIA, p/j pups, awesome sound...loving it better than any bass I've picked up yet. The serial number puts it at '94...but other than that I have no info on it. The neck is sweet and it looks like a three part maple/rosewood but I'm not sure. I have no idea what the body is made of and if anybody knows that would be cool. Also, does anyone know where the Forums were made in the States? Thanks.

    If it's a '94 P/J, it's probably a Poplar body.
    Just picked one up myself last week.
     
  5. poplar was very common... if it's lighter this is probable

    I just picked one up in ebay, the first one too. Passive pickups, rosewood neck. Looking forward to playing it. I'll give a review once I have played it for a while...
