    I found an American Peavey Fury bass at a local pawn shop for $125.00, serial number 03101219. i think it was made in 1987 based on wikipedia information. If any one has any further info I would appreciate it. The bass is great, has a good feel to the neck and a decent tone. I think I want to find a new pick guard (bass is red with a white pck guard) but other than that it plays and feels good. Just need to find a case or bag for it now.
     
  2. Pick guard is about 50 from pickguard heaven

    What exact info do you want

    Manual is on the peavey site

    mainly just want to verify the year it was made and establish its retail value. The bass is in almost perfect condition.
     
  4. You pretty much paid what they're going for. They are definitely worth more, though.

    Post a pic for better responses. Is it a Super Ferrite or Split P pickup?

    Like I said, it's resale is about what you paid for it. I have a '93 just like it and think it's a great bass. Mine was $100 on Craigslist, but I paid $125 for another Super Ferrite Fury here on TB.

    That's a real nice Fury.

    I put a Fender Original 62 pickup
    in mine. It is awesome.

    That's a reasonable price for a very nice bass. I'm guessing it will be worth more than you paid for it in a few years. These a nice playing basses.

    Get some flats for it. P-bass at its finest.

    ya I saw it hanging there in the pawn shop and was like WOW! Pawn guy wanted $210.00 at first but I am pretty good at haggling and was glad to get them down 85 on it, not a scratch on it, tuners are clean and stay in tune for very well. Overall I like this bass better other more exspensive basses I have played on

    so I guess it is an 87 model
     
  14. According to a Wikipedia site. I actually called Peavey about my '84 Foundation. They gave me the exact date it shipped from their factory, so you might try a call to Peavey CS.

    I have a 1995 Fury (I'm guessing it's a 1995 based on the chart. It's an 085 serial number) in MINT condition with the plastic coating on the front and the back still !!!

    It has the 18v active preamp and VFL soapbars pup's. It sounds amazing. Nice growl.

    Wasn't there a Fury with an angled pickup? The bassist from 'Need To Breathe' plays one..

    Congrats! It looks kind of pink in the photos. Is that accurate color rendition, or a modern camera/computer making it that hue?

    The Fury for sale locally is deep red.
     
  19. I have a really nice white with black pickguard '80 Fury that I picked up on CL for $100. I also have a '84 Patriot with a Super Ferrite that is awesome too. Well made basses for sure and a bargain at the price they go for.

    Does anyone know if Seymour Duncan quarter pounders fit without any modifications on a Fury?

    The earliest Furys have the angled Super Ferrite pickup like the T-20.
