We’re stoked to offer this awesome Peavey HP2 in a gorgeous Black finish! Made by Peavey’s top luthiers, this guitar is silky smooth where it needs to be, but also lean and mean.
Ready to rock right out of the box, this bad boy’s got low action and a scorching hot tone. The Floyd Rose tremolo gives you infinite tremolo flexibility and the confidence to know you’re always going to snap right back into tune. The pickups are going to hit your pedals or the front end of your amp hard and they’ll stand up to pretty much any amount of saturation that you want to drench them with. It’s one of those guitars that will melt faces, but is also sophisticated enough to be able to clean up nicely. It’s the perfect tool to add to any shredder’s arsenal.
While the aesthetic is classic, the HP®2 undoubtedly stands out with its carved top and offset, asymmetrical body design that offers comfort, proper balance, and maximum playing ease. Maple was chosen for the top and basswood for the back. We selected these hardwoods not only for their natural beauty and weight characteristics, but also for their specific tonal qualities. Cream edge binding accents the body.
At the select birdseye maple neck and fingerboard, players will find unmatched stability and playability. Dual graphite reinforcement bars and an easy-access, adjustable steel torsion rod provide additional strength, as does the bolt-on construction with contoured neck heel. The oil-finished fingerboard is cut from the same piece of wood as the single-piece neck, keeping the color and grain patterns consistent. The stress-relieved lamination also adds increased stability. The HP®2 has a 25 ½” scale length, 22 jumbo frets and 15″ fingerboard radius. The 10-degree tilt-back headstock has a 3 3 tuning machine configuration featuring Schaller® tuning machines with pearloid buttons. The chrome-plated hardware finish completes the look.
The HP 2’s construction and electronics work in harmony. Two custom-wound Peavey humbucking pickups supply optimal output and tonal response. They’re made using a two-step wax-dipping process that provides ultra-low noise operation and resistance to microphonic feedback. The pickups are mounted directly to the body, further reducing feedback at high volume levels and enhancing response. A Switchcraft® 3-way toggle switch allows selection of pickups in up, center and down configurations. Players will also find a Peavey/Floyd Rose® licensed, double-locking tremolo assembly to complete the guitar. Finishing off the guitar are two push-pull knobs for volume and tone, with the ability to split the pickups individually.
