For those uninitiated, the Peavey T40 was a sleeper for many years. Not many people knew how incredibly well made these were, with a quality tone and versatility. Made in the USA, three piece ash body with maple neck, two huge honkin’ humbuckers with individual tone and volume, A, B, or A/B pickup switch, polarity switch to allow you to change the polarity of the pick ups. This all amounts to a very versatile bass capable of producing a range of unique sounds.
I have owned this bass for about seven years and played it only a handful of times. I am a guitar player by natural inclination and only got the bass for some meanderings into self-published home recordings.
When I bought it, I went on a Nation-wide search for this particular bass, the Peavey T 40, because I knew it was an exceptional value for how well made they were.
Unlike a lot of small bodied bass designs, the T 40 has a very distinct, classic presence.
Since I’ve owned it the bass has rested in the beautiful coffin case, waiting to be appreciated by someone who is a dedicated bass player.
The bass is in great condition with nothing beyond very minor scuffs/dings. It’s a beauty to look at.
