    Found a Peavey T-60 in a pawn shop today for $300. It is a natural ash finish though. Is it worth it without the case? 1-10 I give it a 9 in condition.
    Found this one on Ebay but the color is wrong, maybe. :)

    ca 1980 Peavey T-60 Sunburst with Rosewood board USA w/case | eBay

    I had one years ago- good player. Don't know what they're worth now but check the frets for wear and the neck for straightness. If you like it -go for it.

    No, no, hell no.

    The 80's are not "vintage". At least not in a good way.

    Most of that stuff is crap.

    Peavey is solid but cheap.
    90% of the stuff coming out of S. Korea these days is miles better.

    I'm going back tomorrow and take a better look at it. My nephew pulled it off the wall and was looking at it. I looked at it briefly and not being into Peavy's paid it no nevermind. Then I looked on Ebay and saw what they were going for. Some are asking 400 or 500 bucks for the natural ash.

    I've never played a Peavey guitar that I didnt like, their guitars don't often get the respect they deserve, probably because they're an amp company. That said, I don't like the looks of the T-60 myself, but if you dig it, go for it.

    you need to check to make sure the brain is not in neutral before putting your typing fingers in gear

    Probably a good deal for the price but I wouldn't expect it to appreciate in value too much.

    Those old T-60s have some tones in 'em.

    I'll bet. I am going to play it and see. They have an FM 25R there. The electronics and wiring look very professional from the photo's I have seen. Great shielding too.

    A LOT of options in that toggle switch Mulie. I had one just like it in '91 but the weight was my issue. Personally I don't know what one would price at these days so just trust YOUR judgement and check it out real good. Good luck.

    I would buy it if it was in good shape. $300 is a good price. They are a lot of fun. $300 is actually a little low.

    I sold those guitars in the early 80's. I actually have a T-15 with the chainsaw case and a Backstage 30 that I play when I want to go back in time to 1981. The T-15 has the Ferrite P90'ish pickups. I got the amp and then the guitar off craigslist.

    1981.....ala craigslist.......

    Now I really can't wait to try it. Again that thing has been up in that shop in a back room amongst the Affinity's and such for at least 4 months. My nephew just happened to take it down and look at it. :dunno:
