    Looking into a Fury. Need a P bass with more of a Jazz bass size neck.
    Is there a difference in the Fury necks between the various years it was made? The Peavey logo looks different in the older models I think. Is th neck pretty much the same? I'm looking for a fast neck P bass and the Fury seems like a good choice. Maybe change the pickup to a Wilde P46.

    The US Fury's with a maple neck are all nice and thin and as far as I know they are the same. It's a great P option if you like the a thinner neck. It may be slightly narrower even than the Jazz neck. Somebody has a neck width thread on here you should search for. I believe the Fury is on there.
  3. I believe that all of them with the split P are all just a hair thinner than jazz width. The first run of Furys had a single slanted super ferrite pickup and a P width neck. They are lighter than average, so mine naturally wants to balance with the neck almost parallel to the ground. And, all the US made Peaveys like this one are tanks. You should be able to snag one pretty easily, too.

    I've never played on older Fury. The mid 90's models were picked from the leftover woodpile, honestly. They were put together very well but with less than stellar parts.

    One of my students has an older Fury and it is a fantastic sounding/playing bass.

    I know this is an old thread but, I just picked up a '83 Fury for $50 & I just can't get into the Pbass width neck, I have enough problems being good on my jazz neck Foundation. Anyway, what year did the Fury's go to the thinner neck & would I be able to swap out necks from one Fury to another
