Peavey USA Detonator AX SUPER RARE Mid 90s – Metallic flake black

$ 950.00

*Please read full listing*

Super rare USA made shredder guitar, top of the line for its day mid 90s Peavey Detonator AX

Has various knicks and scratches, all finish damage has been relic-ed (sanded, clear coated)

True Floyd Rose bridge and nut, has been rebuilt using authentic FR parts. I also upgraded the tremolo bar to the newer press in style which is way better than the older screw in design.

Despite body knicks, neck and fretboard are in remarkable shape, frets have plenty of life and all notes play

Very powerful high output pickups, excellent fidelity at high gain and distortion

These guitars sold for $1000 in the mid 90s and are the top level for Peavey in that era

Neck joint is super cool design, utilizes an aluminum plate bolted to bottom of neck to allow less body around neck making upper fret access unparalleled. If you are into shredding, this is a shredding machine

A previous owner had taken the locking nut pieces off and installed a string tree bar instead, so there are two small holes from that. They also lost the original truss cover so a custom one has been fashioned using same material as the back plate which was also lost and had to be replaced. It is not a standard strat back plate since it is not string through design and thus the custom plate.

New strings recently installed but I would recommend a setup upon arrival so you can dial in the specifics of string height etc. as this is personal preference.

Please note the following before making an offer:

For full price ($950) you will get a nice 90s hard case in excellent condition (see pics).

Knock $50 off (900) and you will get a similar hard case in good to fair condition (exterior has some rough spots interior is very good)

Knock another $50 off (850) and you will get a generic padded gig bag

$850 is the lowest offer I will take. This guitar is awesome and well worth what I am asking.

I will also include the Ernie Ball strap in pics.

All used items are sold as-described so please ask questions in advance of purchase.
