    This is my fifth T40 (sixth if you include my T45) And for some reason I just don't hang onto these guys. My first was my favorite, but this one is quite nice (but not perfect). I recently picked up another bass, and my deal with myself is that if I can't fit it onto my multi-guitar stand, something has to go. This T40 drew the shortest straw.

    It sounds and plays excellent. The finish is in terrific shape, and the blade pickups work great. It comes with the original hard case.

    It's not perfect though. The truss rod cover is missing. The funk switch has been capped off, which is easily reversible. The frets are low--I don't know what the previous owner did, but they are POLISHED. HOWEVER, the action is nice and low and it plays as it should. Two of the saddles are damaged--you can still adjust the action, but it's kind of a pain.

    I'm asking [DEL]380 plus actual shipping[/DEL] PRICE DROP--it won't be horrendous, because I get a good deal for UPS at my job. But it's a T40, not a P bass Lyte. It's probably 11 pounds?

    I do have good news--for an additional 40, I can include a NOS bridge (which is less than what I paid for it).

    TRADES you ask?

    Tube amps mainly (Ampeg V4, Traynor YBA200, Peavey VB2), but also interested in some solid state stuff: Gallien Krueger 1001RB, 700RB, MB500, 800RB, Aguilar stuff, Ampeg SVT 3Pro, 4Pro (really any Pro), Genz Benz Shuttle, GBE750, Markbass Little Mark II, III, Tube...

    Cash either way to balance the deal. May consider other basses, but you'd really have to blow my hair back, because my next bass to go would be my Gibson Victory Artist, and I freaking LOVE that thing.

    Have more photos of neck pocket, neck, board, headstock front and back?

    Also, I can't really tell from the bridge photo - what's wrong with the saddles (height adjustment setscrews)?

    FYI, you need a bigger multi-stand... I'm just sayin'...

    I'll get more pics up tomorrow when I am less tired and more sober.

    Yeah, two set screws are tweaked.

    It holds 8! Things are getting out of control here!
     
  9. Way under priced - this is the most desirable combination

    PMs answered--international shipping will be a bear. Probably won't do it, but I'll get the estimate if you want it.
