T-40 statistics

Post  Frank N. Peavey on Sun Oct 24, 2010 12:54 pm

Here is the info I have gathered to date on the T-40.

Please bear in mind that this is not to be considered gospel as it is nowhere near complete nor confirmed by Peavey.

This info was gathered over the course of the past few years from input from owners and by observation of T-40s on auction web sites and in music stores that I have visited. As Mike Frederick at the T-60 Mafia loves to say, "your mileage may vary".

I also track who has the oldest and youngest serial number within each category, but I will not list owners and serial numbers without their permission.

total number of T-40 serial numbers collected - 361
total number of T-40 owners identified - 76
pre-production serial numbers collected - 7
owners of pre-production T-40s identified - 2
production serial numbers collected - 354
owners of production T-40s - 74

T-40 purchased new.

Post  scoorieboy on Fri Jan 14, 2011 7:55 am

Mine is serial 00464545. I bought it new in Edinburgh, Scotland in (thinks) '79. Toaster pickups - Black body maple neck. In my other hand I was looking at a Fender precision, but it just didn't seem serious enough for the job compared to the Peavey. Never entered my mind to keep it mint condition (this machine worked hard for a living).... but setup well and always maintained and cleaned properly by our backline tech. In those days it was new strings (Rotosound) every month or so, and it slept in a flight case with plenty of silicone to draw any humidity off. Still a working instrument after 32 years.

Mine is 00551807. I believe it's sunburst, rosewood, toaster pickups, flat switches, pick guard dots, metal nut. Here's some lousy photos from the ad where I found it..





If you need more info, let me know Wink
