Peavey HP Signature Special Metallic Red 2010 Electric Guitar

$ 436.12

Here for sale we have a Peavey HP Signature Special in Metallic Red finish. Made in China in 2010, this guitar features a bolt-on construction consisting of a Basswood body, Maple neck and 22 Jumbo fret Rosewood fingerboard. This instrument is fitted with a Floyd Rose-Licensed Double-Locking Tremolo with TremLok and sealed tuning machines. The pickups in this guitar are a pair of Peavey Custom-Wound HP Special pickups, these are wired to a 5-way blade selector, master volume and a master tone.

The Maple neck sits comfortably in the hand, with the ‘C’ profile filling the hand nicely, the Satin Oil-finish provides a smooth and articulate playing experience up and down the neck. The Rosewood fingerboard is pleasant to the touch, and with its 14” radius and Jumbo frets assist with string bends and vibrato techniques, delivering a tailored playing experience in any position, whilst offering a nice balance between comfortable chord playing and practicality for quick lead lines. The unique body design provides uninhibited access to the upper register, ensuring a razor sharp playing experience in all registers.

The Peavey Custom-Wound HP Special provides the player with thick, warm voicing, with a distinct top-end that is articulate and well-defined. The bridge pickup provides a fat and punchy humbucker-like sound, making power chords sound gritty, whilst also providing soaring lead tones with broad tonal dynamics. However, with subtler amp settings the bridge offers a bright, glassy clean tone making harmonics sing with a bell like tonality. The middle position provides bright trebles and full warm bass, and lends itself well to rhythm tones. The neck pickup offers a smooth, warm, rounded tone that handles distorted tones as well as it handles clean tones, making solo lines a sumptuous affair.
