NGD: 1979 Peavey T-60 Vintage Natural

Post by mizbiz » Tue May 21, 2019 6:22 am

I’ve been wanting one of these for a good year now after I acquired a T-40 bass. I searched and searched, actually went and saw the few available locally, and just couldn’t find one in good enough condition to warrant dropping the cash on. Finally I found one that looked pretty decent on Reverb with the non-blade toaster pickups I desired and original molded case, so I made an offer. It came in yesterday…. I spent the whole day disassembling, cleaning, polishing, wire brushing and reassembling it all up. It’s all stringed, tuned and intonated and it plays like a dream. I couldn’t be happier. It weights a ton, but I don’t mind heavy guitars. In fact, I quite like them. I can’t wait to get this into the studio to practice this weekend!

But then the microtilt won't work.

It's like that so you can flip your T-60 during the set and the audience will be able to read it! True story!
