PEAVEY T-40 Vintage 1983 Bass Sunburst & Rosewood USA Blade PUs 54835
You're looking at a Peavey T-40 bass in sunburst finish, made in the USA in 1983. 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 player's bass is near 40 years vintage now. Beyond its battle scars it still plays and sounds great. Amazing wood grain showing through the finish and a really nice rosewood fretboard.
Cosmetically, you'll see some of the wear in pics I've taken, including a some pressure cracks around the neck joint. The frets are in very good condition. This bass is a solid player and it's looking for a strong back at 12 pounds, 3 ounces. Comes with the original case, which, beyond one latch being dodgy, is in decent shape and will keep it safe. I've priced this one lower than the current rate due to cosmetics. 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 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.
