I don't know anything about the guitar, but here's some info about it I found online:


And also, since your buying it on CL, you can test out the guitar before you fork out the cash.
Good luck bud.

The T-60 was Peavey's first guitar. It was made in the U.S.A. and was the first production guitar to be manufactured using CNC equipment, so the specs from one guitar to the next were spot-on. Now damned near everyone uses CNC technology to manufacture their instruments. Clearly inspired by Fender, the T-60 had a bolt-on maple neck and maple fretboard, an ash body (the first ones were clear natural finish; colors came later) and two Peavey-designed humbuckers. It was also one of the first (if not the first) guitars to come from the factory with a thermoplastic molded case. They were great instruments and they last forever.

They were never as popular as they should have been because they were Peavey's first effort at building an instrument, and because Peavey was at that time known as an entry-level amplifier company. If you like it and it is in good shape, grab it. It will give you years of good service.

Robbgnarly response is interesting - not sure how much value there is in knowing who is selling it to determine how it plays...

Anyway - the T-60's I've played (added one to my collection a year ago) that were in proper working order are great; especially for the money. $200-$500. Being able to own a piece of guitar history, American made, etc as fatalgear pointed out is why I bought one.

For a couple hundred bucks, if it's in good condition, you can't go wrong

Amazing guitars. I don't own one, but I've played one more than once, and they are just perfect. Go for it as long as the owner didn't screw something up.

You just can't have enough guitars. It is impossible for that to happen.
