    This is a T-40 project that took me a couple years to complete, just because it's hard to find all the parts!

    [​IMG]

    I DO NOT have original T-40 knobs, a truss rod cover, a Peavey neck plate, tuning gears, phase switch or output jack (the tuners are on a different bass).

    Neck: $180 shipped
    Body, loaded: $175 shipped
    Body, unloaded $50 shipped
    [DEL]Pickups: $55/pickup, $100/combined shipped
    Pickguard, loaded: $10 shipped[/DEL]
    Bridge: $50 shipped
    Case: $100 shipped
    String tree: $10 shipped/ free with neck
    Dunlop Nickel 105-45 strings cut for T-40, played about half an hour: free with any other part
    Whole bass, in case: $300 shipped (anyone who owns a T-40 and case knows how heavy they are, and my price reflects exorbitant shipping fees)

    Whole bass, sans case: $275 shipped

    If my prices seem odd or lopsided, it's because parting it out is kind of inconvenient, and I don't want to be left with just the body or pickupless bass. I'll adjust prices if you want multiple parts, too!

    Honestly, I'd love to sell this in one go, but if you only want/ need a pickup or neck, that's fine. If you buy both pickups, I'll include the wiring harness (it needs a good once-over since I removed the phase switch; I can leave or remove the killswitch). I don't want to sell the unloaded pickguard because it's cracked and has a hole in it for the arcade button killswitch.

    [​IMG]

    I chiselled a cavity for the arcade-button killswitch and sanded the body down (originally natural finish), and put on a couple coats of Minwax Ebony Stain (no top coat). In trying to remove the string-through ferrules, I broke the outer ring off of one, so I left them in while sanding/finishing.

    Of course, if you're in Columbia, SC, you can save a little money on shipping!

    PM with questions or offers!

    Make me an offer! I bet there's plenty of folks out there with some Frankenstein plans for some T-40 electronics or a neck!

    I thought T-40 parts would be in high demand.

    Nice nice. What kind of string spacing does a t-40 have over the neck pickup?

    I think it's the same as any other Fender or whatnot. The pickups are bladed, regardless of being a toaster or blade-style, so they'll fit anything pretty wide or really narrow.

    It's held together by a blank, Fender-style neck plate. I couldn't stomach paying what some folks were asking for the Peavey plate, and I've never used the microtilt.

    I've lower my entire-bass asking prices, but I'm open to offers on all the parts!

    Price drops abound! Buy these parts before I put on of the pickups in my Bronco bass.
