    Anyone know where I can find a good deal on a back brace?

    Thanks, man. I bought it online from a private seller and am quite pleased with the condition. I had some nerves buying a bass I hadn’t played, but I couldn’t be happier.

    My brother got one years ago and I’ve been keeping my eye out for one since. Such a rad bass.

    There’s a teeny tiny bit of oxidation on the bridge and I can feel (but not see) some minor buckle rash. Otherwise, this thing is pristine.

    Sweet!!

    A T-40 is near the top of my GAS list!! I know they’re supposed to be heavy, but the amount of different sounds you can get out of them is supposed to be great!!

    Congrats! Enjoy it!!

    My kitchen scale tops out at 11 lbs and this topped the scale. I’m guessing 11.5-ish lbs.

    I’m guessing it’ll be well worth it!! (That’s not even THAT bad!)

    Nothing wrong with squeezing in a lil’ workout while you’re playing! Pick it up over your head a few times during each set, you’ll be ripped in no time! The
    PT-40 workout plan...
