Another trade.

I have guitars that have permanent homes and I always seem to have 1 that is in trade mode. Last week I picked up a 1978 Peavey T 60 in a trade. I'd owned one of these back in the 80s and it was sold simply because back then I felt that it had the wrong brand name on the headstock. It'd always been one that I'd regretted getting rid of because it was a real player. I got to play this one last night at church and am still impressed with this model. It may be in the permanent home status. Prices on these are still low and odds are these are not an investment guitar, but they are real players and have some nice features for a low priced guitar.

Here are some pics.

BTW.... This thing weighs 12 pounds....1.8 pounds more than my Les Paul.....not a guitar for a kid.

I saw one in a pawn shop several years ago. I remember it being very heavy. Nice sounding guitar and it came with a gig bag and a back brace.

I had one once, and never bonded with it. It was too heavy for my comfort, but the main deal was the thin neck (not for me) and it seemed sterile-sounding to me, but I was (still am, really) going through the skillet-hands phase. Just couldn't make it sound good. Built like a tank, for sure. No need to replace any hardware.

I considered one when I was looking to buy my own guitar and upgrade from the Les Paul copy my parents bought me.

Ultimately I went with an Iceman--which I prefer, but the T-60's were nice.

Cool! I have one just like it, but it's a '79. I got it from a pawn shop for $100. It's in mint condition but the bridge pickup is broken so that it can only be used as a single coil. I don't know if I got it that way or not, but one of these days I'm going to buy some replacement pickups (T-60 toaster style ones, like the originals) and fix it back up. I miss playing it.
