    Just purchased a mint 89 Foundation (only a few nicks and virtually like new) and a Fury (no idea on info yet). I love Peavey USA basses and really appeciate the neck tilt adjustments. You can really set up a bass very well using this. I have played several Fender USA basses and they are absolutely no better than these are. The Fury has a beautiful flamed maple fretboard.

    The Fury has a fairly large chip out of the finish. What would you recommend that I do with it? It's like 1/2" x 1" on the back edge. Can I seal it some way?

    Pictures will be uploaded later of these.

    If you have the chip, you can glue it back in. That's what someone did on Fury I owned. If you don't have the chip, see about some wood filler that you could mold into the crack. You could repaint the bass to make it match.:)

    BTW, I love the Fury and the Foundation. Incredible basses that can be had dirt cheap.:D

    I realy enjoy the fury bass, even though its a gloss finish neck wich i usually dislike... i have spent the last days with one at work that had no sound(alot of miss wiering from my side before i managed to get the principal for stringed instruments to buy a new pickup) so now we have a fury with a Seymour Duncan pickup, sounds good and plays great.

    its pretty bad beaten though, but i have cleaned it and straightened everything out, so nw its just chips that shows that its not new.

    I haave adopted it though, so that bass will get a monthly check up :p(something i wont give any other bass at the school :p)

    My Foundation (early model) was one of the finest basses that I have ever played. Inexpensive? Yeah. Not high tech? Yeah. But it played and sounded fantastic.
    That's what I want in a bass.

    And here is the flamed neck on the Fury. Very nice, and both play and sound fantastic!
