    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!

    [​IMG]

    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.
