    15 years ago I was telling people how great T40's are and nobody listened. The pickups are amazing, and even though most T40's weigh a ton, they just sound and feel so dang good. Congrats on a great bass !

    Just put mine on the scale and it came in at 34.7 pounds. Of course I took the neck off....and the bridge....and the pickups are out of it.....all that stuff probably adds another 8-10 pounds .....:D

    I bought one when they first came out, I paid 225 for it brand spank'n new. I loved the pickups, weighed a ton but I didn't care. I sold it sometime in the 80's wish I never had. I just bought a black and maple one off ebay this week, should be here next week and I can't wait! Congrats. on your T 40
  8. nice you got yourself a T40 back!

    GerManson, heigh thee over to the T-40 club where you and your new baby will find lots of friends. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=482874&page=31

    I just picked up a '78 and find it's about as heavy as my son's '83 G&L L2000. Anyone with tips on weighing a bass? Does a bathroom scale give a true reading at that end of the weight spectrum?

    I must say, they are some chunk o' musical goodness.

    I always hated Peavey, until now that is. Beautiful bass
  15. GerMason-
    congrats on your 'road-worn' treasure! The T-40 should be in the bar-gig hall of fame.
  16. Congrats on your new bass, I played one when they were just out and loved the tone but not the weight. I probably should have gone for it anyway.

    You can weigh yourself while holding the bass, and then weigh yourself again without it. The delta should be close enough for government work.

    I know this may be blasphemy, but my G&L actually weighs more than either of my T-40's and both of mine are first year models. :eek:

    L2000 Ash bodied but feels a bit like a resonant lead body. :D My T-40's are plenty heavy but the G&L takes the cake.
