Peavey T-40 Bass - Vintage American-made Coolness
In more recent times you could pick up one of these all American-made high quality 1970s Peavey guitars or basses for a mere song. I mean why buy a Squier if you can get something as well-made and playable as this, often for less cash, and with that coolness factor that it's a little bit different from what everyone else is playing, a little bit retro.

I mean, this Peavey T-40 is an absolute beaut... with a volume and tone for each of the two pickups, you're not going to get the same variety of sounds out of a bog-standard P or J Bass.

But I think maybe the tide has turned, and with a Buy It Now price of US $599.99 this bass is priced a little higher than most I've seen over the past few years, and to be honest it's a much more realistic price for an instrument of this quality. Grab them while you can and as cheaply as you can because I predict these will be fetching a lot more money in years to come.

  1. If you like these Peavey's pop over to - Eric has a stunning collection of these (and many many others) but Peavey's are high on list of favourites

  2. Peavey guitars are way underrated IMHO. I once had a T-60 that was a great player. The coil tap built into the tone knob was a nice touch.
