PEAVEY T-40 VINTAGE 1980 4-String USA Bass in White +OHSC Toaster PUs 86656

Sale price $699 Regular price


The T-40 is one of the most underrated basses around. Killer white version. Nice toaster pickups.

You're looking at a vintage 1980 Peavey T-40 bass in the rare white/creme finish. Comes with the original hard case, which is also in great shape. For my money, this is the coolest finish for this bass. This one is in great condition for a 38-year-old bass. Set up nice and playing great. Frets are in good shape with some basic wear. Has finish wear here and there for a nice light relic look. Don’t buy this expecting a museum piece. It has been played but still looks good and is just a great player. These have two Volume/Tone controls, a phase switch and pickup selector switch. They also have an innovative tone circuit turning the pickups into humbuckers when you back off the tone control for warmth and acting as single coils when turned above 7 or so. Weight is 11 pounds, 3 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking! NOTE: Due to weight this bass will cost $200 to ship international.

Guitar Setup
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.
