    I'm not really familiar with this model, and I can't quite tell from the pics, but it looks like those pickups might be EMGs.

    Or do my eyes deceive me?

    I have a stock T-15. Saved it from the scrap heap, it was in the back room collecting dust at the local guitar shop in a state of disrepair. Had the pickups but no electronics... so revived with CTS pots and a switchcraft 3 way, its a nice player. I love the 23.5" scale feels kinda slinky, easy to play. I know it was a student model but them P90ish single coils sound sweet too. Just wish I had a case...

    Peavey Guitars

    I currently own a Generation S1 all original with original case. An S2 that has been modded with Seymore Duncans and a Predator with a Carvin loaded pick guard with s60's, (I have the original pickups and pick guard). I absolutely love these guitars (the generations) and now basically only play these guitars. I love the way they sound, feel and play. I plan on selling the Predator, my G&L Legacy special, Gibson studio and Godin S2000.

    Congrats, Ron. And thanks for helping your dad out, songbird. :D

    So, Ron, a white one, eh? My kid brother had one back in the day, the early 80s, but his was the natural finish. As I recall, that's a heavy son of a gun, but quite fun to play.

    For some time I've wished that I could find a copy like his old one to give as a gift. But I haven't done it yet, partly because I haven't found one in a good price range, but mostly because I selfishly keep spending on me. :oops: Well, I did buy a red stripe TransTube Envoy 110 for him earlier this year, so maybe there's hope for me still.

    Yea Larry, it is heavy but I don't think I will be using it for a whole 4 hour gig. It will have to share time with the Martin and the Logans. It is a nice guitar though. Fun to play. Best of all the price was right.

    My kid brother would play just the T-60 for his gigs with his band, but we are talking about 30+ years ago.

    Besides, he's a big guy; 6'1" by the time he was 15, 6'3" now. I haven't been able to call him my "little" brother for 37 years. ;)

    That's sayin' a lot!
    (not that I am implying disagreement, but Peavey makes some AWESOME amps)

    I bought a 1981 T-60 the other day and from what I have read that was the year Peavey put the blade pickups in the T-60. Mine has the toaster pickups in it. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? (My serial number seems to be an early 1981 number)

    Wow, the internet is forever! I posted that 3 years ago, before I stumbled across a teal stripe Bandit that changed my opinion of Peavey amps. I would revise that statement now to say that their guitars may be even more underrated than their amps.

    Their modeling software for computers and iOS is quite good, too!

    Nice. Really nice.

    I have some Generation tele's and I don't think I'll ever get rid of any of them. The Vintage model with the neck humbucker and tele bridge pickup is one of my favorite guitars. I also have the Custom tele with the twin covered humbuckers, simulated acoustic pickups, and full binding. In addition I have a triple single, all black and some more standard tele models. I got them all NOS at very excellent prices and now I'm especially glad I grabbed them when the chance was there.

    Some of these other models are really interesting and cool looking.

    Actually I saw a couple new Peavey guitars yesterday. One was a really nice red semi hollow Epi Sheraton type guitar and it sure looked nice. I may have to check it out. It is a stunning guitar. They also have a singlecut that is a decent looking guitar.

    Yeah, I agree, those late 70s/early 80s Peavey guitars really are interesting and cool looking. :D

    This model -- the Omniac JD USA -- is no longer on my list of "peepers"; one of 'em is finally a "finders keepers"...
