Just picked up a new bass today. 1979 Peavey T-40 in amazing shape (with amp and all the accessory fixings to boot). I originally thought I would flip it since I already have one (1984) but now I'm having second thoughts.
The selector switches are different and I noticed the pickups are different as well. The strings are so bad (probably from 1979) that I haven't been able to play it very much yet to compare (plus it was late when I dragged it back into the house).
Anyone know how the pickups are different (1979 vs 1984)?
Any reason to keep both?
1984 is on the left and 1979 on the right.
I'm including the rest of the happy Peavey family in the group shot. I'm still looking for my T-20 but the only one I can find at the moment is in Regina and he won't ship it. Ebay is not the place to buy guitars (for the most part). Way too overpriced for the questionable quality junk that is there.
By the way what does everybody do with all the crap that comes with basses that you buy? So many includes tuners, straps, cables, amps, tuners and instruction books. I have about 7 tuners and 5 small practice amps and way too many crappy cables. If folks want to throw stuff in I'm happy to take it. Probably the best throw in for me was when I picked up a Traynor Mono Block II amp. When I got there the guy said I hope you have a large vehicle. I asked why? He replied it comes with original Traynor 2X15 included. I was glad I brought the van that day (that amp is in the background).
