  • Peavey T60?

    Thoughts on this guitar? I'm looking for a guitar than can rock, but maybe play some blues also. JJ recommended me this guitar in another topic, and I'd like some more detailed info, please. Thanks guys!

    It's an interesting guitar, has a small neck in a thin kind of way, some interesting electronics, weights a ton and a half too.

    They are selling for about 2 bills these days.

    I'd spend a bit more and try a tele instead

      A tele was always a thought in my mind, but I want something that can emulate a Les Paul's tone also.

        A friend of mine has one.
        Rock solid build quality and nice versatility in tones due to the wiring configuration.
        I'm going to pick one up eventually at the right price.

          You could try a Epi LP or if you can swing it there's a Gibby no thrills LP at Musicians Friend for less than a grand, comes with a gig bag and you might want to up grade to the hardshell case.

              ive been looking for one of those, because i can actually afford them if they really are still that cheap. they look like they're heavy as hell and appear to be very roadworthy. i bet it'd complement m G&L f100 nicely

                I have a T-60. They can be heavy, but mine doesn't bother me. They are also indestructible. With a bolt neck and a maple fretboard they are more like a double fat Strat then a Les Paul, but it is more like an LP than a Tele would be. The tone controls are also coil splitters. Up to about 7/10 the tone control is a tone control for each pickup as a humbucker. After that it splits the coils and you get single coil sounds.

                There's also an out-of-phase switch which can be used when both humbuckers are being used to put them out of phase with each other.

                I gig mine regularly, lately I've been lending mine to my gear-challenged rhythm guitarist in my main band, because I know he can't hurt the thing.

                I got mine a year ago, VG condition w/ohsc for $200.

                  They remind me of Shergolds. Not the best lookers, but proper workhorse giggable guitars. Thats where its at.

                    Though those guitars are nowhere near as cool as a T60.

                      True fact.
                      I played one yesterday at a used shop.
                      Heavy as feck (but not as heavy as the similar Takamine electric).

                        I've been watching them on eBay for the last 2 months.

                        The sunburst and solid color ones are bringing in WAY more than 2 bills lately. Some have been going for 300 - 400.
                        That's why some of these jokers are putting a buy it now price of $599. on them lately.
                        They are great guitars, but I would have a tough time paying more than 300 for one.

                          .


                          The non-clear finishes have always been more because there were so fewer of them. As the general price for the "kitchen table" finish ones has risen, so have the sunburst/colors prices.

                          That's why I snapped up my black one for $200 last year without even haggling.

                            No surprise I'd jump in on this one. I've loved them since inception. American made, high quality, absolutely incredible durability, wide range of tones thru unique electronic wiring, I don't see whats not to like. I think the only thing Peavey did wrong is they needed to get a big name artist on one before introduction.

                              Johnny Copeland and SRV from the "live at Montreux" DVD.. Johnny sure liked those T60's..
