PEAVEY T-60 Vintage 1980 Black +OHSC Toaster PUs Nice! 85959
Monster bass from 1980. Great looking black bass with excellent pickups.
You're looking at a vintage 1980 Peavey T-60 guitar in black finish. Near 40 years vintage. Third year of production and has the "toaster" pickups--preferred by many over the "blade" pickups on later models. Comes with the original Peavey molded hard case AND--believe it or not--the original owner's manual. Frets show pretty mild wear with minor flattening but lots of meat left. Still plays well all over the neck. Cosmetically, the guitar is very clean for its age. Small marks all over, mostly on the back and edges, but all very minor, nothing major. Hardware is clean, which is not always the case on T-60s. Look at the bridge and tuners...pretty nice. Hard to see but rear pickup surround has one little corner chipped away. All electronics work like they should. Overall, will be hard to find one much cleaner than this. These have two Volume/Tone controls, a phase switch and pickup selector switch. They also have an innovative tone circuit that turns the pickups into humbuckers when you back off the tone control, which adds warmth and thickness. With Tone set above 7 or so, they go to single coil operation. Weight is 8 pounds, 1 ounce. (That's about a pound lighter than some of these!) 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.

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.
