  1. This Fury turned out fantastic! Love the refinish. I may to restore the one I bought as a parts bass now.

    I bought one a few months ago for $80. I learned to do some fret and neck work on it. It is a decent bass but most definitely cheap. The truss rod feels super cheap in it's adjustment and the action cannot go terribly low but it plays decently. It sounds decent on it's own but it is terrible in a band mix. I find the pickups too scooped so I get lost in the mix without a ton of power behind it.

    I intend to keep it to learn how to refinish a bass as well. I can only hope it goes half as well as the one on page one. My Fury will have to be a solid colour because of all the dents and dings.

    How does the fury compare to the patriot? The fury I'm talking about also has the super ferrite pup. I love my patriot

    I know this is a old thread but I was reading it so I thought I would go ahead and share a pic of my custom 1994 Peavey Fury! Here she is, the color is Surf Green

    A USA Fury turned up for 100$ near me. The owner says that there is a small crack, or fracture on the bottom of the neck. Here’s a pic, he says that it doesn’t affect play, and otherwise it’s in good shape. What do you guys think? Worth 100$ or skip? I will probably go play it later but have no idea if this split will be able to be fixed.
    Thanks

  8. It's a pretty common sight on 80's to early 90's Peavey. They have a micro tilt so folks didn't need shims.

    Trouble is folks don't follow instructions and got too hasty with the M-tilt.

    Not a big issue,wind in the M-tilt grub screw and it'll close. Neck were 2 parts, split up the middle (no separate fretboard). You could try getting some glue in there before tackling the M-tilt grub screw.

    I'd agree with kodiakblair and would give it a shot. It's not unfixable and $100 is a very good price if everything else is in good shape. Give it a good once-over when you see it though as the bridge and input jack look pretty tarnished/corroded.

    I'd probably offer $75.

    Good luck.
