Ahoy there! I spotted a 1980-something MIA Peavey Foundation in the music store. It's got a maple neck and fingerboard and two soapbar p'ups, which may or may not be single coil. The whole bass seems solid: tuners are nice and tight; the finish is only mildly scratched in a few places; and it has a neck tilt adjustment in addition to the truss rod adjustment. The bridge saddles are pretty rusted (my only significant concern; but, hey, it's replaceable), the jack is a bit questionable, and the tone knob doesn't have much noticeable effect on the sound. The pots are also slightly scratchy but no worse than my old Squier. Otherwise it seems to be a good buy -- $174.99 and comes w/molded plastic case. It sounds quite good: nice and deep, surprisingly focused. What do you fellows know about the Foundation? Does this strike you as a smart purchase? The store can only hold it for 24 hours, so I need to decide right away.
