    Hey, man, I was just being a d*ck with that post...I'm tired, so I'm beign rude...seriously though, those T-40s are cool things! I REALLY wanted one for a little while, cause the neck was perfect on it, but it weighed a ton! I'm a little on the small side, so it wasn't for me.

    i know what you mean about the T-40, i'm forced to play the Arbor if I play sitting down cuz the T-40 will put my leg to sleep within minutes. I had to get a special strap because that beast gave be back problems. Oh well, it plays so well and it sounds so sweet and it sustains forever. you would have to put a gun to my head to get me to sell it.

    ARBORS ROCK!

    Well, ok they don't. But I feel special for having one. Maybe. Sometimes.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Okay, man - you're gonna have to 'splain this one to me. Cocteau Twins, New Order and MMW stickers all on the same bass?!?

    Dude, is this a schizo bass or what! ;)

    DUDE! your 81-whatever is the same as melvin from nofxs first guitar(only a guitar not a bass) and the arbor is the same as their bass player fat mikes. when they were first starting out those same guitars/basses were used as what you have.

    that url is a picture from one of their early shows with them playing iwth those guitars/basses.

    Hmm, well, dunno if mine was better than a Squire or not. . . :) LOTS of buzzy frets, even with the action way high. Chronic electronic buzz problem too. I, uh, "took care" of the fret problem myself as you can see.

    I have no idea how to find out when they were made. All I know about mine is I bought it in 1991, and it says "Made in Korea".

    The bridge is pretty similar to a Badass I think. Nothing too wonderful.

    As for the stickers. . .they're what I had handy. :D Of course I liked all those groups then, and still.

    Cool! A T-60! Those are as good of a guitar as the T-40 is a bass! And just as heavy, too!
