In this photo, taken at a concert at the Gilman Street in Berkeley, CA on May 25, 1989, Larry appears to be playing a Peavey T-60 with natural finish. It has a couple of stickers (one of them being a green Operation Ivy sticker) applied to the front. Larry used this guitar (supposedly being his only guitar at the time) during his stint with the Lookouts from their formation in 1985 and demise in 1991.more
On Atkins' official website, colleague and friend, Paul Yendell discussed one of the more unique pieces of gear in Chet's guitar arsenal which Chet called, "The Peaver". From the official FAQ: ‘The Peaver’ was a guitar I built for Chet to record with. I had made myself one and he liked it. He had a Peavey T-60 so I took the body and put a wide type Strat neck on it. I then put 2 EMG pickups in it. He used it quite a bit. “ Sunrise” was one tune, “Laughing at Life” was another. It wasn't very pretty as guitars go, but sounded great.more
Txt from: http://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/whats-up-with-all-the-peavey-t-60s.302192/ Here is Johnny Copeland playing one. He is the only pro that I know of that played one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAMpIGh-jMI These guitar I think were one of the first guitars with splittable pickups. You can switch them from single to humbuckers. They have special wiring. They are notoriously very heavey 11 lbs plus. They are built to withstand a nuclear blast. They play well and sound good. It is a guitar I have always considered but have never bought for one reason or another.more
Really a big guitar. One of the (or the) first made with computer and robotics assistance. But I has the opportunity to change for a more known guitar with a big name and in the high of the standards and I prefer conserve my T-60 and it`s uniques sounds (yes sounds in plural)
