    The fact that the original 51 Pbass was string-thru kinda negates the argument.

    That's a good trio of documents. I've got the chart. I'll have to add the JPEG manual and visual tone chart to the Info sheet next time I update it.

    Thanks Folks!

    Forgot to tell you guys,
    Last Friday I had a quick recording session. My singer is putting out an EP (mostly old school country originals) and needed some bass tracks. I did all 4 on my T-40 with all knobs wide open. The engineer liked the bass tone. Top it all off, I was able to give him bass tracks for 4 songs including punches and with an alternate version for 3 of them in an hour and 5 minutes from walking in the door to the studio. I'm a bit proud of that.

    I've only recorded a few times in my life but I've used the T-40 almost every time and it just sounds great. I've got a P and a J and they sound good and I had my Carlo in the other side of my double gig bag, but the thick and even (very balanced output and across strings and up and down the board) tone of the T-40 just seems very well suited to recording.

    No tracks to share yet, but I'll post when I have something.

    Thanks for the tone charts above. I have a pair of T40s (used to be 3, and a T60).

    And that bass is at least 35 years old! Workhorse bass

    Indeed.
    In my case it's 39 years, though when I got it in the early '00s it was virtually unplayed. Still had the plastic film/label on the pickguard.

    One interesting detail. I played with a strap and a towel on my leg because after about 30 min playing seated the weight of the T-40 and lack of significant contouring can make your leg rather sore.
