    Gorgeous congrats I have a T-45 in the same condition I really credit those cases they have always been some of the sturdiest cases ever made and really protect the instruments that one looks unplayed she is a beauty.

    Nice! If only Hartley had advertised the weight of the darned thing, I’d likely still own my T-40.

    Nobody is stupid enough to actually pay me to play their gear.
    What is the weight? I have owned a few different T-40's and all were over 11lbs.

    Yours looks heavy.;)

    Thanks Guys!!! I do agree with mjac28 the case is super sturdy and keeps these instruments in excellent condition. I really have no idea on the weight but honestly it doesn't seem that heavy at all. Many tone options on these basses..IM HAPPY! :hyper:

    That looks amazing! Was considering a T-40 when I saw one on sale down here, but the guy wanted a very firm £625. Far too rich for my blood - now I feel like if I had bought it, I'd have a serious case of grain-envy right now ;)

    She's a real beaut!

    My first bass was a T40. Never missed it until recently. I'd like to pick one up soon.

    That's a nice specimen - enjoy! :bassist:

    I and a co-worker went to the Peavey factory in the early eighties for training and a tour. Hartley was innovative in CNC and had it going on, making ten or twelve necks simultaneously. He was also working on automating the finishing process at the time. Cool stuff! :cool:

    Very nice. I had one about 10 years ago, though not a wood-grain finish.
