I have read in one forum that the peavey t-40 is one tough guitar, weighing at 11.5 pounds, but it sounds so great according to the responses from bass enthusiasts. Despite its heavy built, it delivers a deep growly sound and has a very cool thump for pop and slap.
The peavey has been named as the unsung hero since it never took off but it is undoubtedly one of the best sounding basses ever built. I may not play the guitar nor the bass, but if I do, I’d definitely take the reviews I have read. Or when someone I know wants to learn how to play the bass and decides to buy one, I can recommend this to him.
