I found your heaven
T-60 is a great guitar but way too heavy for me to have as a daily player. I was blown away when I tried on though.
I love me some old peavey gear, but...Why do they need 4 guitarist?! I do think it’s kinda funny that the peavey T series instruments are so closely associated with country player, because IMO they really don’t look the part. All those knobs and switches and big hardware parts, they look more like hard rock axes when they’re painted. Maybe it’s just the natural ash that gives it the rustic down-home look?
Jerry's band after playing those heavy guitars every night
4 guitarists is crazy. 4 playing the exact same guitar is even crazier. All playing that same kinda oddball model is just amazing to me.
For real though, I dig that country guys of that era were into these guitars, for a genre that's dominated by Teles and Strats most of the time. Kinda like a place where the country guys and the hard rockers found common ground.
Johnny Copeland had a Peavey sponsorship in the early 80s and played a T-60 with great results.
I acquired one shortly after watching his performances and learned what all the fuss was about, then sold it after thinking, "If I'm going to play something with this weight, I'll just get a Les-style guitar..."
Also shouts to this super funkified version of Amos Moses. They coulda broke into Papa Was A Rolling Stone without a hitch
I've had mine since they were introduced. The idea of tone circuitry that lets you go from HB to single coil with just the tone knob is still unique in the industry. I have never had to take the pickguard off, thankfully, because I think I counted 23 sceews holding it on.
They look beautiful anyway.
Don't take it off unless you absolutely have to! The material tends to warp over time. The screw are helping to keep it straight. If you take it off, the stress relief could cause it to deform and make it very hard to get the holes lined up again without cracking.
Man I love this song and didn't even notice them T60, thanks!
The tones on my T60 are unreal, it's the only guitar I have that Really does it all !
