    grabbed this Peavey T-40 for $100 the other day...needed a fair amount of setting up...and has its fair share of dings..but now that i managed to get it set up i remember what i have always dug about T-40s!

    they really should make an updated/reissue of them imho

    so many tones...and heavy as all get out...

    couple crappy cell pics failing to upload...will resize and post

  4. Damn, dude... $100 is rad. I thought I got a good deal on my $150 Peavey Fury.

    The T-40 was a gigging bass for me for a while. The only gripe I still have is the coil tap thing above 7 on the tones. Really wish it was kinda like a normal tone. I wouldn't buy a bass w/ 'buckers if I wanted a single coil sound... Just sayin' :D

    Very nice. Can't believe you got it for one hundred bones! And I don't think I've ever seen one in blue. Looks good. Hope to score a T-40 soon for myself.
     
  11. Very good score for $100 w/ case. You should be very proud. I saw one in a pawnshop about a year ago, and they wanted like $400. I had some band name etched into the body,and the body had been planed to thin it out. I'd have only given them $30 dollars for the condition it was in,and that would only have been just for the neck and parts.Congrats again!!:)

    $100 for that bass - with a nice case - is an absolute steal.
     
  15. A little jealously here! Awesome score!

    Not likely to be eBay as a single knob is going for $25!

    Very nice!
    This reminds me, I STILL need to buy me a knob.

    Recently scored a T-20 for $50 in a pawn shop rescue mission, and LOVE it.
    Now thanks to this, and that video above the T-40 is on my radar.

    LOVE, that blue.
    Very nice indeed. Enjoy it!
