PEAVEY VINTAGE 1991 DYNA-BASS +OHSC KOA Wood Neck-Thru USA UNITY SERIES 40096
You're looking at a vintage 1991 Peavey Dyna-Bass Unity Series 4-string bass in natural finish. KOA wood with Purple Heart stripes. Comes with original molded Peavey case in good shape. This has neck-thru quality construction and a beautiful rosewood fretboard. Frets and neck in great shape. P- and J-style pickups. Controls are Volume, Volume, Tone. The bass is in immaculate condition for being 29 years old.
The wood on the body really glows and even more so when you oil it. Bass has only minor playing wear. Ton of bang for your buck with this vintage bass. All gold hardware, hi-mass bridge, amazing playability and "butter" factor. Spend $800 on a new bass and you won't get anywhere near this quality. Weight is a very trim 8 pounds, 5 ounces, due to a thin/trim body with tummy cut. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!
See video showing how the bass plays with action set at .04" (not plugged in).

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.
