SO,
WHAT IS IT?

 
These older Peavey
T-60s were really ahead of their time, and to boot, were US-made with
all of the attention to detail that goes along with that. This one was
recently traded-in to me and I've cleaned it up a bit, set it up, and
it's ready to go. This dates probably around 1981 or so, since that's
when the pickup covers changed (as I recall) to this style.

This guy's got a big heavy ash body, two humbuckers (which, when you
turn the corresponding tone knob up past 7, turn into single coils), a
phase switch, three-way selector, and individual tone and volume
controls. Bridge is adjustable for each string. Frets are in good, but
used, order, and the neck is a two-piece hard rock maple job with a
good truss rod in it. This has the Peavey neck-tilt adjuster at the
neck plate on rear.

I've just popped a new set of GHS "burnished" nickel strings on it,
46-10, which feel and sound vintagey awesome.

OH, and this comes with its super-protective original flight case! I'm
totally jealous of that!

FEATURES, YOU SAY?

 
Woods: big, solid
ash body with comfortable contours (ala Strat). Finished in plain poly
and showing some play and use wear. Still lookin' fine.

Fittings: all-original everything.

Decorations: Spartan!!! Black dots on the board, three-ply guard, not
much else to dress it up.

Sound: this guitar fills the role of a Strat or Tele as you can get
that clear single-coil tone by going past 7 on the tone knobs, but also
fills the role of a Les Paul or similar guitar with the big old dual
HBs. The phase switch gives you that "AM radio tone" at the flip of the
wrist, and... basically... this guitar is the only guitar you'll need
for recording or gigging. It's that cool. And it plays FANTASTIC.

ANY ISSUES?

 
Neck pos. pickup cover has a crack in it, but is holding steady.
