Peavey Vintage 1989 DYNA-BASS Neck-Thru Active / Passive USA Unity Series 54187
You're looking at a vintage 1989 Peavey Dyna-Bass Unity Series 4-string bass in midnight blue. Peavey made some of these as bolt-on lower quality basses, but this is neck-thru construction and a very high-quality bass with and a beautiful ebony fretboard. Frets and neck in great shape. P- and J-style pickups. The bass can operate in both active and passive modes. Controls include Volume, Pickup Blend, Treble, Mid, Bass (active EQ only operational in active mode), and active/passive switch. One knob is not original. There is also a trim pot to attenuate the active gain circuit located on the rear control cover.
Bass has only minor playing wear. Just scuffs, no large dings or dents. Pretty amazing for a 33-year-old bass. Bass plays and sounds amazing. Ton of bang for your buck with this vintage bass. Weight is a comfortable trim 9 pounds, 1 ounce, with a thin/trim body and tummy cut. Specs below were found on the Internet. Please do your own research. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
