Monster bass from 1979. Great looking black bass with excellent pickups.

You're looking at a Peavey T-40 bass in black finish, made in the USA in 1979, vintage bass from only second year of production. These are very reliable basses that last forever. Has the famous "toaster" style pickups and the unique EQ circuit that changes the pickups from single to double coil as you back off the tone knob. I've given it a complete once-over cleaning everything up. It does have some playing wear, mostly minor scuffs and some worming on the back. Still in good playing shape. All controls and electronics work as they should. Frets have some minor wear but plenty of life left. Good bass with plenty of miles left in the tank. Weight is 11 pounds, 2 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking. 


The nice thing about the T-60 is how versatile its tone palette is. You can go from thin Tele jangle to big fat rock distortion with the flip of a switch or turn of a knob. There's a reason these are still sought after guitars.

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.
