No, I’m not fishing.

Peavey T-40 1978

I am still having a hard time concentrating, so the writing part of me is in hibernation. But, I did pull this guy out today. Haven’t played since the end of October. I played scales with fingers, slap, and pick. Felt good to have it in my hands again.

Peavey T-40. Mmmm. I have one just like this (except mine has staining from use).

These 4-stringers are heavy. And I mean eighch double ee vee wai, heeeeveee. You can easily slay small woodland creatures with one swing from this axe. Possibly even mid to large sized, but that’s a different post. The pickups have some really cool, powerful wiring. You’ll have to look in the manual, I forgot. Sorry already.

This baby is also slap-able. I believe it was a monster slap machine in the 80’s. Currently, some people call it a poor man’s Rickenbacker. I’ve owned a Rickenbacker 4001. I don’t think it is a good poor man’s Rickenbacker. Actually, a poor man’s Rickenbacker is the Rickenbacker 4001/3, because you are poor after you buy it. 😀

But, seriously, play this gal (or guy) with a pick and you will get some aggressive tones (roundwounds required). I’ve also played my darlin with flats and she was more sultry. Still sounded great. It does have a massive bridge like a Rickey. It also has a metal nut. Metal. Nice.

The best part about this bass guitar is that you can pick one up for under $500 on used.guitarcenter.com or ripoffbay.

This was Fingerstyle Friday. Keep Thumpin!
