PostSubject: Other T-Series Discussion Areas??   Sun Jan 13, 2008 10:59 pm

There seems to be a lot of interest on TB in the other American Peavey T Series basses. T-45's, T-20's, etc. Any thoughts of expanding into the other 2 models, or maybe just "Other American Peavey's" ?


Here's my newly aquired T-20 Cool

Very nice T-20!

Over at the T-60 Forum we discuss all vintage Peaveys. Nobody ever got booted for bringing up other brands either.

Hell yes, bring on the T-20, T-40, T-45's!!! Also the MIA Fury, Foundation, Dyna, and Patriot too!!!

I've owned all of the above mentioned basses except for a Foundation. I loved my Dyna but didn't like the volume increase/decrease when switching the active on/off. Really slim, fast neck. 1 1/2" nut. Seems even slimmer than a Jazz neck.

The Patriot is a great bass too. I've heard it called a beginner bass but, IMHO it's anything but that.

The older Fury and T-20 are identical to me. I don't get why they changed the name because all the electronics, bridge, tuners, neck, body are the same... scratch

I REALLY miss my T-20. The super-ferrite pickups are really HOT. My basslets both have them and honestly, for such a small bass, these little guys kick @$$.

Congrats on your T-20, that's just like one I had. I swapped the cream pickguard for a tortoise, looked great....gotta get another T-20!!!!

Knife, do you still have the slanted p/u surround with the thumbrest? If so and you're looking to sell it, I'd be interested.

We have to keep in mind that we have members who are excited about this "T-40 only" forum. If I get this suggestion from more members in the future I will consider perhaps a vote. Although, converting to a "all peavey bass" format might cause this forum to loose all it's originality. I would ONLY do it if more than 50% of the members at that time agreed to it. I have my opinions but I would never argue with the majority. Thanks for the feedback!!!

AND NICE T-20!!!!!!

I'd be ok seeing other early peavey basses on the forums, but if it would make everyone happy, perhaps a separate forum section for "other peavey basses".

Nice T-20 you have there FL. I have an early model (1984) Fury with the same first generation super-ferrite pup. Almost the same bass, really, except for the smaller body. If you look under the pickguard of the T-20, you will find that despite the size above the pickguard, the pickup is acually larger than a T-40 pup!

I guess I better post this now. Anyone want to trade a t-20 for a fury?

Nice Fury!!

I just recieved one yesterday. I need to take some better pics, the rosewood fretboard is really nicely figured. The seller bought it new in 85. The color is called Inca Gold. I want to make a nice pickguard for it, not sure what color/material yet scratch

This one had a T-20 neck on it but I also bought the original Fury neck from the same seller. After about 2 hours of cleaning and tweeking, it's playing NICE!!!! It has a nice thin, front to back neck profile, different than the T-20. The T-20 necks don't really fit the Fury body too well, just for reference Evil or Very Mad

Beautiful! I've never seen an old peavey in that color. Really sharp!

I wouldn't change the pickguard, Gold with Black guard is a classic color combo that really works. You see it on old fenders from time to time.
