    So, my backup bass is a Peavey Quilt-top fury 4 (the newer, active kind) that i bought years ago for like 450. The other day, i was in guitar center, and saw a used one on the rack for 900$ What gives? are they really worth that much? or is guitar center just whacked out? It has no mods, no signatures or anything, and wasnt even in mint condition! If i could get even 1/2 that for mine, id do it in a heartbeat and turn around and buy something new. Any insight, or experience from any of you would be greatly appreciated.

    The suggested retail on a Fury is $599. I'm with Mark - your sure it wasn't a used Cirrus?

    Absolutely, 100% sure it was a Peavey Fury IV with a green top. i know my cirruses where i see em...mmmm...

    but having played the peavey for 2 years, im absolutely sure it wasnt a cirrus.

    Guitar center is wacked out. Even if you could sell it why would you want to replace such a reliable "old friend" backup instrument?

    It could have beeen the American made Millennium that I mentioned. The quilt-top Fury and the Millennium look very similar.

    Now imagine the following bass in the transparent green color and a black headstock.....

    Millennium Plus

    no go. the one on the wall, just like mine, has satin chrome hardware, two humbuckers, rosewood neck, and, most of all, says FURY IV on the headstock. It also had the trademark loose tuning pegs and string ferrules, neither of which are present on the Millenium. I have played both, and could tell you the difference in quality without even looking at them, just by playing a few notes. I know my bass where i see it, and that WAS a fury.

    also, furys are a laminate quilted finish, milleniums are flamed tops.

    Then the only conclusion is that GC is whacked.

    That's true but there's a significant difference in the look of the two Millennium Plus instruments that I own. The top on my Plus 5 is very much like the top on the one pictured above while my Plus 4 has more of a quilted appearance than flame IMO. The chrome hardware and Fury IV name on the headstock sealed it. I now have to agree with Philbiker & christle. GC is wacked! ;)
