NEW PEAVEY T-40 BASS FORUM!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

$350-$500 based on ebay and GC used prices. They can be found for less but will generally not be 79 models and/or they will need some work.

While I like T-40's, and even owned a T-40FL, I can't imagine joining a forum dedicated to one particular bass.


Good luck with it though!

:thu:

I'll see you, and raise you. :)

By owning two, and having owned three, I've just registered. :)

What's wrong with non-79 models?

Nothing.

 

The one that I had (and now eldude has) is an 84. It kicks much ass.

 

I believe lug has one of the earliest (a 78 prototype with no serial number).

Not a thing. Some people feel that when the pickups were switched to the exposed blade type, that they quality went downhill, but as far as I can tell, this is absolutely false. Certainly, they did start using different wood for the bodies on the solid color models (poplar, IIRC), and they stopped using aluminum nuts in favor of plastic later on, but both early and later models are just fine. Personally, I like the earlier pickups a little better just because they aren't quite as hot, but the later ones are ok too.

nothings wrong with the non-79's, just like there is nothing is wrong with non-1959 les pauls. Early models just usually go for more money. Not Always, but usually. Plus, You'll see ten 80's T-40's for every one 70's so they are a bit rarer. 70's T-40's were only made for about 8 months.

Isn't it SN. 0001 that Lug has? :confused:

 

Regardless its a very nice piece of history and a cool bass/anchor that he has. :cool:

Hello everyone, it seems that I have arrived a little late, but I am fascinated by the idea of having a forum to learn about the Peavey T40 guitar bass. I just bought a t40 1982 is in excellent condition!!, I had already had one a few years ago and I sold it (soon I regretted it) and today I have another one in my hands, it sounds like thunder and I'm starting to know (how to do the combinations of the humbucker with the switches of 2 and 3 positions) I hope to learn from you and if I can contribute something to the group I will do it, thanks.

By diming the tone knobs, you are putting the pups in single coil mode.  If you back off the tone knobs to about "7" they become humbucking.  My preferred method is to dime the neck pup and put the bridge into humbucking mode.  YMMV
