Original Fretless T-40
not the fretless version but I have played on several fretted versions.. they are neat and heavy
very heavy, good tone considering the low price. that looks kind of like a fretless conversion, it's hard to tell...
They're actually VERY good basses. I've only played the fretted version though.
It is a fretless (look under the picture).
I just bought this a few days ago. I've never seen one but understand Peavey made them from 82-87. It is a great, great instrument.
I think what FNA meant was that it looks like it was originally fretted, and subsequently defretted and the fretslots filled-
hence what look like lines in the fretboard (a factory lined fretless would have light-coloured lines), and face dot markers fitted centrally as on a fretted are rarely used on original factory fretless basses.
It's original. I sent the serial number to Peavey to verify before I bought it.
Here's a closeup of the fretboard:
I stand corrected - the FL designation seals it.
looks like the lines have just become dark through playing.
are those flatwounds?
