Just got it today.
BEAUTIFUL bass. Congrats! Love Peaveys.
VERY nice - wish I had one in my arsenal
I like the clean n simple look of the T45 over the T40(plus a bit rarer)
does the extra coil/tone knob work properly?
It seems to work properly. Haven't had much time to play with it. But it does change the sound.
I think I do too. I wonder if they are substantially lighter.
Cool! I'm not sure why they would be lighter... it looks like they basically share the same body.
That is a nice bass. I would really like one of them plus a nice ash and maple T40. Throw is a fretless T20 (played one when they first came out, and wish I had it now). Also, a really nice USA Cirrus 5. Peavey makes or made nice basses.
The T45 and T40 shared the same body as far as I know so they both weigh a bunch. I can take it...large man I am.
I seem to recall someone saying they were thinner, or were in certain years, or something. I may be misremembering.
Anyway, weight's a deal-killer on the T-40s.
What are those strings? Are they yellow? They don't like like neons and they have blue silks. Or is it just the light.
Maybe different/lighter wood for the transparent finish? I would think what the 40 has in extra pickup/electronics weight it makes up for in more routing vs the 45 and it would even out.
It's heavy. Much heavier than my foundation. There's not much routing at all inside. It has some gold colored strings on it with purple silks. Idk what kind of strings they are. In gonna get new strings and get it to my tech and let him set it up.
The volume works great, the middle single coil/ dual coil roll off seems to work and the tone works. Now I just have to figure out exactly what they do to the sound at different spots. Sounds pretty good I'm gonna play it on a couple songs tonight just to play around with it.
I played it a little last night at a show. It plays ok needs setup and new strings.
I may know where one of these T-45's are...could be for sale too.
Btw, I've picked up a lot of Peavey basses and many were heavy, however I just picked up a T-40 in a pawnshop and I know it couldn't have weighed much more than 8 1/2 lbs...I didn't buy it just picked it up to see the weight as I cannot handle anything over 9 1/2 lbs and prefer less.
Problem is it has some damage and they have it priced at $350.
Congrats - I would love to grab a T-45 at some point
Christ is that bass pretty. Congrats man.
How strange...I just got an email earlier today from someone who just happens to have one of these for sale! It was a reply to another bass I inquired about last month on CL. Person had sold it, but had this bass available as of today. Supposedly, it's in great condition and comes with the case. He's selling it for $400.
Only thing is that I'm not in the market for a bass right now, as I have bought four basses already this year. lol. As far as I know, he wants to sell it locally as he posted on CL, not sure if he wants to ship it though. If you're in the Detroit Metro area and interested let me know. I can forward the info, I don't believe he even has this up on CL yet.
I don't know anything about these basses, are they really good and is the price reasonable for this?
Aarrgh, no.. I'm not buying going to buy another bass for a while..lol..
Attached is a pic he sent me today.
Those are Randy Jackson signature Dean Markley strings...they call them Alchemy's I believe...interesting choice for a bass like that
Beautiful bass I have one love it.
