1983 T-40 Missing String Ferrule/Broken P/U Selector Switch

Post by buckshot » Fri May 15, 2020 5:17 pm

Hi everyone,

I recently picked up a 1983 T-40 in Burgundy. She’s a real beauty and sounds fantastic to boot. Very happy. The only issues with the instrument are a missing ferrule for the G string and a broken pickup selector switch (which looks like an aftermarket switch). Couple questions for anyone who may know:

1) Will any type of replacement bass string ferrules do the trick or do I need to look for something special?

2) It seems that the OEM pickup selector switch was made by C&K. Can anyone confirm this is accurate? If so, is this right switch: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Peavey-T-60-T- ... SwEK9UDhB9 Seems to be the only place I can find it. Any other suggestions?

Thanks everyone. Been a Peavey fan since my older sister bought me a Basic 60 amp that I still own!

Hi Buckshot.

You can use any mini switch. Ignore the ebay guy,he's targeting Peavey owners and charging them for the privilege :D

RS Components sell switches from $3.

Same from this guy.

Bat switches from here, bit pricey though.

For the cost of 1 string ferrule you might as well replace all 4.
