Got me a cool lil sleeper today!

Found a great playing/sounding old PV T 20 today for 149.00. Plays GREAT, love the pickup, as it is great for the funk stuff. Natural finish, about an 8 outta 10. http://www.vintageguitar.com/uploads/ar ... lue-02.jpg Here is a pic of the model.

Thats the same one I learned to play bass on! I would still have it but a singer "borrowed" it and never seen him again.

Nice, I got a T40. And it is a beast of a bass. Is it just me or are these basses really really Heavy? I'm surprised sometimes you can get Vintage us made musical instruments for cheap still. Of course your model is a little more bare bones, But that can't be worse than trying to Fix my instruments switching. I mean, I need a new jack, but I don't want to even attempt it because of the phaseing and coil taps in both instruments, not to mention the weird arrangement of them.

It is definately 70s heavy, I used to have a late 70s Ibanez Artist series bass. That sucker was crazy heavy, had the active dual pickup thing and sounded GREAT. Totally regret selling that guitar. This one while simple, sounds GREAT. Very full but with a bright treble response. The neck plays perfect for my tastes. It is an absurd bargain IMO. I googled a cool vintage guitar mag spotlight on em. They seemed to like them a lot.
