    A few months ago, I found this beauty of a bass, an old Peavey T-40, in it's original case, and it's in really great shape. It looks like it hasn't been taken out of that case in years. I usually see these things going for $400 or so, but I feel like this one may be more valuable, as it has the slightly rarer sunburst finish, but also it is a factory fretless, which although I have seen a couple online, I haven't seen any for sale, or any with this finish. I plan on keeping this gal for a while, but I wanted to know just how special she is. If anyone has a good guess, let me know.

    Ooooh. No clue on the value, but I'd buy it for $400 and think it was a good deal.

  3. You need to be a supporting member to start "what is this worth" threads. That aside, having a fretless neck rarely adds value to a bass. If anything it seems like the fretless neck versions are usually a bit lower due to the niche market. In addition while the Peavey T-40 is a great bass neither the company or that line has really found a hold in the vintage market. It looks like a great bass so enjoy it. It's nice to know that there are still hidden gems and US made basses from years ago that people cane still afford with relative ease.
