Peavey Foundation Bass

I am selling this US made Peavey Foundation with maple board and cream finish. It’s in very good condition and the neck is nice and slim. I had it strung with heavy strings and tuned it with a low D for a while but now I’ve decided to buy a 5 string so I’m getting rid. I recently had the neck pickup rewound by Aaron Armstrong at Armstrong pickups who did a great job. 

These Super Ferrites are highly regarded but hard to get into to repair.
 

It’s a nice light weight bass under 9lbs with a Jazz vibe to it. No case or bag so I may take the neck off to transport it if postage is required. These basses are well regarded for the price. I reckon this one dates from the early 90s.

Pickup preferred so you can play it. No trades. Can post in the UK at buyers cost.

Excellent basses; that's definitely an early one, before they changed the headstock to use the newer (less pointy, more 90s, worse) Peavey logo.

Hard to imagine a better bass for the money.  Fabulous basses full stop, let alone for under £200.

I have the 5er.  In fact it is the second 5er of these I've had, plus an earlier 4 stringer like this.

This is a 90s one, I had the same one in black. Foundations were made from about '83 onwards, so not an early one. These were made in this style for a short period, with a differently shaped body and rounder headstock than the 80s ones.
