The T-60 is one of the most underrated guitars around. Killer red version. Nice toaster pickups.

Description

You're looking at a vintage 1980 Peavey T-60 guitar in rare red finish. Near 40 years vintage. See "Patents Pending" designation on headstock. Third year of production and has the "toaster" pickups. Comes with a rare rectangular original Peavey hard case (not pictured). Frets are in excellent condition. Plays well up and down the neck. Cosmetically, the guitar is very clean for its age. I've shown the few marks it has in pics. I'd call it an 8.5 to 9/10 overall. 

Electronics work as they should. 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, 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! GOT QUESTIONS? CONTACT ME! GET IN TOUCH!

TONE:
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!

Packing
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.
