- Hand-made in Korea
- Lime tree body and neck (I guess it's lime tree due to the weight and the clear sound)
- Rosewood fingerboard
- Body-through neck and body-through strings...
- 24 jumbo frets
- Two Dual Blade ceramic humbuckers with high output level
- 3-way toggle switch
- Two controls: volume, tone
- Perfect finish, pearly binding!! Wonderful
The guitar is very easy to play thanks to its lightness, its slim, flat and comfortable neck, and the access to the upper frets up to the 24th fret...
Here is where it gets interesting:
The unplugged sound is very good thanks to the manufacturing quality.
The response is brilliant and crystal-clear. The sound is as beautiful as the guitar.
It confirms the acoustic sound, but given that the pickups can't be split the clean sound is never as crystal-clear as when unplugged... It's the only disadvantage of this guitar, if you consider the acoustic sound.
I'm a Machine Head fan and I bought this guitar to play it in drop B.
With a normal tuning the sound and dynamic response are very impressive. Once dropped the manufacturing quality shows its real value:
The instrument sounds great in spite of the very low tuning! Heavy metal rules!
The lower you tune the better it responds...
The pickups sound perfect with distortion, their response is great regardless of the low frequency content. The sound is clear up to drop B tuning (I didn't try lower tunings...)
It's really stunning...
Update: I tuned down to drop A... The sound is still clear and precise!
Exceptional guitar with a 5-year manufacturer warranty. Value for money: unbeatable... Forget all other heavy metal guitars like ESP, LTD, Jackson, Dean, BC Rich, Ibanez, etc. They are much more expensive...
I like the fact that Peavey guitars are not famous... because I don't like it when other people play the same guitar as me... That's the reason I regret having posted this review... Forget what I wrote, I don't recommend this guitar!
Update: Forget it, it has been discontinued... Oh and by the way I forgot to mention that it's labeled "Limited Edition"...

Revan#'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- Hand made in Korea
- Basswood body and neck (I think given the weight and sounds very clear)
- Neck-through construction type, including strings they even crossed ...
- 24 jumbo frets
- 2 double ceramic micro "dual blade" high-level output
- 3 position selector
- 2 knobs: volume, tone
- Flawless finish, the outline of the guitar is fully Pearl! (Beautiful)
This is guitar is obviously very easy to use, light, handle very nice, flat end, access to the 24th fret perfect ... The quality of finish is indeed the appointment.
This is where it gets interesting:
Thanks to its high-level violin, the sounds are really empty promise.
Many Shine, Crystal at will, as magnificent as the guitar.
vacuum sounds continue, but the pickups do not benefit from split, the lack of crystal clean sound no matter postion selector ... Surely the only negative in view of the guitar sounds empty.
Normally provided, the sound of this scraper is already very impressive, meets all solicitations possible. But once dropper, is where the qualitée of violin makes sense:
Violin making very clear restores the bass!
The pickups are really perfect in saturated, they respond very well regardless of the register of serious and all the various stresses. It stays clean and intelligible even in A Drop
Guitar truly outstanding, paid € 749 (5-year warranty manufacturer, excluding the shop) report qualitée / price ... Unbeatable ... I forget all the other Metal Guitars predestined to either ESP, LTD, Jackson, Dean, Bc Rich, Ibanez ... Which are undoubtedly much more expensive ...
Finally as better than Peavey guitars are very little known ... It'd CH *** cross someone with the same scratch me ... So I regret posting this notice, forget what I wrote and I do not advise you.
EDIT: Forget it no longer produced, and I wondered why There's that written on it "limited edition" ...
