Peavey T-60

Found a Peavey T-60 in a music store yesterday. Maple neck, natural finish, played great. Pickups had been replaced (looked like Carvin pickups with LOTS of pole pieces). I didn't have a chance to plug it in, so I can't comment on the sound.

I know some people here really love these, and I can see why. It may sound strange, but it just seemed to fit me...feel and looks.

Price tag said $400, but I don't think I'd pay that. Anyone have an opinion on the guitar or the price?

Well, this one had some weight to it, not a lightweight.
I liked the neck, it reminded me a bit of a G&L, but a little thicker.

I've had my natural since it was introduced. Don't ask me what year that was. It has a tiny neck, and the guitar weighs more than my car. I always liked the unique way that the pick-ups went from single coil to humbucker as you changed the tone controls.
It may hold the record for pick-guard screws, I think I counted 27.
Recently, while discussing a trade with Guitar Center, the manager told me to leave the Peavy at home. He said he wouldn't give me anything for it. I don't think that it's got a great deal of value, but personally I feel that it's a long way from worthless.
$400 seems high, particularly since those pick-ups aren't standard. If they are actually Carvin's M22s, then they can be split. Offer $200 for starters. And, get yourself a nice wide strap if you'll be playing standing up.
Good Luck,
Don

Depending on condition, the price is too high by about a hundred bucks (maybe more). Top dollar, great condition, they go for $350 on the high end. These things are great and easily obtainable for the collector since the prices haven't risen insanely like other vintage guitars.

However, at least at top-dollar price, not having the original blade pickups would be a deal breaker for me on a T-60 (maybe not on a T-15, though), especially because of that that proprietary tone control that takes them from being single coil to humbucker with a half-turn.

Yup. Agreed...

I forget exactly what I paid for mine but I think it was $300 or so. It's exactly the same as my first decent electric guitar!



Me in 1983:

(Sadly all those amps were borrowed)

My new (old) T-60:


Nostalgia is a dangerous thing. 'Course, I have a bunch of nice guitars and consequently I hardly ever play the darned thing...

I'm really into the T-Series. My fave setup is the T-15, it's so Tele-like except for the scale. So I fixed it:

Peavey T-60. Well used, beat up, but still great guitar. something is wrong with wiring thats stopping the bridge pickup from making noise but should be an easy fix. comes with the original case.

The ash-bodied ones (I believe they used alder for the solid colors) are invariably heavy. I've always found the necks to be super-thin, though.

I got one in 93, sold it in 99 and just got another I pieced together from Two T60s. They are dang heavy and LOUD. Still messing with the neck to get the action just right.

I've got a natural finish T-60 body in the back room somewhere that I picked up in the early '80s.
I should dig it out and see if I can find the parts to complete it.

I had one that had Dimarzios in it that I got for $150, I played it for a while & decided to sell it for $175-200 (it was heavy & the thin neck really wasn't my thing.
I learned the following..
1. The lack of the PV pu's makes a HUGE dent in value
round here they go for @ $350 in super clean condition W/case. Changed PU/W no case well $150 was probably fair.

2. People REALLY want that case..allmost every reply was "do you have the case"
several people offerd to buy just the case if I had it.

Best offer I had was $100 (I think he just wanted the '70s Dimarzios.
I ended up parting mine (it also had a changed tuner & non original knobs.

$400? unless it is the screaming guitar of you dreams, I would want to have a 9/10 guitar with case & every piece of candy that it originaly came with.

I paid $130 for my '79, but that was 7 or 8 years ago. Came with the case, but the lining was gone.
