1980 PEAVEY T-40 Vintage Bass Natural 3rd Production Year USA Blade PUs 57896
You're looking at a Peavey T-40 bass in red finish, made in the USA in 1980 (serial begins "0065..."). Comes with original hard case. These are very solid, reliable basses that last forever. Has "blade" style pickups and a unique EQ circuit that changes the pickups from single to double coil as you turn the tone knob. This bass looks absolutely great and the color will turn heads.
Frets have lots of life, and it plays well up and down the neck. Cosmetically, some mild rash on the back and pickguard, small rough patch on back of neck, but overall very nice. All controls and electronics work as they should. Weight is a super solid 10 pounds, 15 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup 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. We spray out any pots that are noisy, 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. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. 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.
