    Hi - I'm new here, so please forgive me if I'm not posting this question on the correct board. I have an old Peavey T-40 electric bass from circa 1981, and need a new set of chrome string saddles. Haven't heard back from Peavey parts yet on this and haven't had luck online, but does anyone know where I might obtain these either new or used? Thanks. - Paul

    Wow, that's going to be a hard part to find. A new set is not likely, but you may be able to find a used set in good condition. Is the set you have worn or lost or what?
    The guy to check with would be Chip Todd. He invented the T-40 and is said to have a fairly good stock of t-40 parts. You can contact him through either of these sites.

    http://chiptodd.com/ or here http://peaveyt60.com/chipscorner.htm

    You may also be able to find some folks with extra t-40 parts here:

    If you end up needing to replace the whole bridge, shoot me a PM, as I may be able to help you out...

    Welcome to Talkbass and congrats on the t-40! Be sure to post some pictures of it on the "T-40 club" thread. As you suspected, this is probably the wrong forum for this. We have a "setup and repair" forum here for this kind of thing. No worries though, you'll get responses anyway, and a mod will move the thread over there if they deem it important to do so.
