I was feeling gassy. Walked into the shop with some cash, walked out with a 1978 Peavey T40 and the original hard case. This thing weighs a ton but it plays so nice

Sweet. Been wanting one for the longest time.

A kahler would fit ... but that bridge is badass.

Nice score.

Yeah I don't think I'm willing to get rid of that big pretty bridge for a Kahler.

I'd probably drop a couple pounds off the bass if I did though, the thing is pretty heavy

Nice score, Boots! Wink I remember way back in the day, those T40's were the basses to have.

I can see why, this is the first time in a while I've actually been able to satiate my GAS. For $300 including a hardshell case and a new set of Dean Markley Blue Steels I might as well have stolen it

One bass that I always wanted. Nice bass. Is the white original?

As far as I can tell. There were whites made that model year but were apparently pretty unusual. Looks to be of exceptional quality too so it's either factory or one of the best aftermarket finishes I've ever seen.

There were two in shop actually, this one and one with a natural finish and rosewood fingerboard, an '82 I believe. For the same price, the choice was easy.

And to add to what MadMike already said, that bass would be an excellent candidate for a Kahler. I understand you not wanting to do so, but if you ever did, it would be a great way to go. Plenty of real estate on the body, and nice straight angles for the strings up top.

If (when) I ever pick up another one it's getting a Kahler for sure
