    $100 worth of Made in the USA goodness here: the Peavey T-15. This is a pretty cool little guitar. Its a short scale, has a thin neck which hasnt bothered me at all. The Super Ferrite pickups have been the biggest surprise, these things sound great. The guitar is in really nice condition for being 30-ish years old.

    Does anyone know how to determine year of manufacture from the serial number?

    It also came with the original case with built in amp.

    Wow, nice buy for $100. You even got the amp-in-case!

    I'd check the peavey forum for help with that serial number: http://forums.peavey.com/

    Congrats, what a deal.

    For the year, start with the first four digits of the serial number.

    Scroll down on the Peavey Wiki site, and look up your guitar's year of manufacture.

    A good deal you got there, the last one I saw with the amp-in-case had a price of $450 on it.

    That looks like a seriously fun guitar to play. A chunkey bucker tele. What are the pickups? Twang? Crunch?
    What type of bridge is that?

    You got the T-15 and an amp case for $100!

    That's great. Congratulations.

    If you email customer service at Peavey with the serial number they'll send the year of manufacture within a day. Helpful people.

    And I thought I got a good deal when I picked mine up two weeks ago for $250 with amp in case.

    That is a hell of a score! I love the way those play and sound. I buddy of mine had one when we were kids, and he lent it to me for backup on gigs. I'd often use it for the first couple of tunes.

    I know of a guy that giged with one. Showed up and told the sound man to "mic this" regarding the amp in case. Lucky lucky find. Enjoy!
