Purchased New in 1982 for $295.00 had it special ordered from my local music store in AL. I was living in Meridian MS in 1978 and My father was given a blank guitar body noting its construction and being familiar with the Peaveys (having had one of the daughters for a student teacher), I wanted one of the bass guitars.

I like the fact that it is so solid and came with a molded case almost indestructible. 22 years later it still plays as well as it did new and almost always gets a complement on its tone and appearance. Adjustments are easy, hardware is sturdy and over all was and is a great value.

It is heavy!

Solid maple neck bolt-on, three piece laminated solid ash body, heavy chrome hard ware, string through body design. The quality of construction in unmatched in any thing available today!

Although it has never gained the notoriety of the Fender line Peavey has made some Great instruments. The T-40 was made in the United States and the quality of engineering and construction show. It is an excellent bass for any ones arsenal at any price.
