I love old Peavey stuff, are these any good? This one is killing me!!! It's so purrty!!!
Are you sure it's not a T-40? And yes, it shore is purty. I had a T-40 in about 1980, and it was actually a good-sounding bass. Heavier than the Titanic, though.
Nope, you're right, it's a T-20.
Sure that's a T20. The first bass I ever bought was a T20. I think I paid around $200 for it. Nice bass. Here is a picture of me 20 some years ago playing mine.
Damn I was skinny and had hair on top of my head!
Still got the same lead singer!
Yeah It is a T-20 Not a 40, only one pick up.
Rock solid Bass with a great Maple fingerboard, And a very solid sound. (side note also great in bar fights, Didnt happen to me but once saw a guy hit someone with one, bass was fine, the drunk not so good!!!)
There is a single pup version of the T-40 called a T-45. the T-20 has a different pup/bridge/control setup. It was intended as more of a "student" bass than the T40 or the T45.
^^^ you know you are right, I forgot about the 45. It sucks getting old!!!! Thank you for reminding me, I remember the T 60 guitar and T 40 and T 20 bass, had to think for a moment
Funny thing about the T-60 is I find guys just as dedicated to them as T-40 owners are to the T-40. There was also a "student guitar called the T-15.
There is also a nearly identical peavey bass that has a slightly different shaped body, but same super ferrite pickup in the same position and I think the same guard. It was called the Peavey "Patriot". I wonder if there were any other differences, such as neck profile?
That blue color and black pickguard combo is pretty sweet.
I have an '84 Fury which is nearly identical to that T-20. Same slanted pickup, maple fretboard, etc. The Ash body/maple board combo makes for a bright, fat, Precision-esque tone. Those "super ferrite" pickups actually have nice output. The neck is pretty thick like a vintage precision and is super stable. Stays in tune forever.
They are great buys if you want Precision Bass tone, but dont want to pay Fender prices.
I found a T-20 over the weekend for $159 with OHSC. I just may be forced to buy it.
My brother (whom is very loyal to his) owns one of the Patriot guitars... He'll never ever sell it, as it was his first guitar. A real looker too, black on black with an all maple neck... Mhmmmm good!
Yep, its a T-20. I had one...
I think this is the only T-20 thread.
I just picked up this battle axe. Cleaned it up a little and put new strings on it. Will test drive it through my amp tomorrow, don't have it here! I played it through a real small amp to initially test it.
Serial# 01184080 means it is a 1982 I believe.
Looks strange no matter how many times I see it that slanted pickup looks strange unnatural even but, they sound like sex!
I never tried one just heard clips.
Can you make an ATK sound similar too it?
I saw on the web there is a T40 website -is there anything like that for fans of the T20? I have on that I would like to flip for some GAS and I would like to know the value of these. I know EBAY is a crapshoot for pricing.
No love for the T20 here on TB?
I have an early Fury which is very similar. Nice bass, plays well. The body may be a bit smaller (than a T-20); probably weighs less.
Seemed that the early T-20s were at least as heavy as the T-40s.
If I had more space I would get one.
Quite a bit, actually. Check out the U.S. Peavey Club thread. Lots of love for lots of Peaveys.
Early fury are the gen right after t20 neck is rounder than legendary pencil necks
Patriots had several neck profiles and sound much brighter
Trashed = 150
Add 50~75 for an own contour case
