Lol. I was choosing my words carefully, because i know there is going to be more, including a Peavey T-40, which i cant wait to arrive in the post :) Let me know if you are aware of those two people you spoke of in your other post has a spare Wal bass that they would like to part with. Otherwise thanks for that update regarding the 70's era pickups - seems that those pickups may have been in original condition after all - should have bought them :cry: I might have to buy myself a Steinberger bass to cheer myself up lol

My Peavey T40 arrived today. It is a tone machine. It is a bit heavy though, especially because the body is made from heavy Ash wood. Anyways here are pictures of it:

The bass is in pretty good condition and came with its original hardcase

The on board electronics allow great tonal variation. The tone knobs change the pickups between single coil and humbuckers at certain points, and there is a phase switch also. All passive.

I just realised I never put up any pictures of my latest bass. I brought this one back on my last trip to the U.S.

I've got a full picture that's 533x800 & 184kBytes, but it's apparently too big even though it's less that the 256kB allowed (see viewtopic.php?f=54&t=383). Weird.
