    I just got a Peavey Forum bass from the 80's, but the heads of the tuners are very loose; the rattling is driving me nuts! Question: does anyone know where I can find replacement parts?

    I think that only the G tuner is rattling because there is no G string.
    If that is not the case then you can get almost any replacement tuners and not just specific Peavey tuners. A photo of the back of the headstock might help.

    Ebay commonly has them pop up.

    Chances are they were custom specified for Peavey... the backing plate is normally the difference.

    I'll be pulling a set from one of mine in a bit to stealth it (if you're interested).

  5. Did you get the wiring right on the forum? Also, the bass is probably a '94 Model.

    I should have given more info...
    First, thank you bassmanrocke for the wiring diagram. The electronics work great now!
    You are right, it is from around 1994. I slapped some new chromes on it and they sound great. The reason it is rattling is because the heads of two tuners are loose; they are seperating from the stem. For a quick fix, I slipped a small piece of clear, thin plastic in there as a shim. I'm wondering if standard fender tuners will fit, or do they need to be more of a vintage schaller type?
  7. The nineties tuners have press in ferrules and are very similar to straight shaft 70's Fender tuners. They are also very similar to late ninties Chinese Squier tuners(also nickel plated). My guess is that either would be suitable as replacements. The tuners from earlier Peaveys have screw on ferrules. They will fit, but will not match up to the holes on the back.

    Thanks for the info! I'll do a search in the usual places.
