HP™ Special Guitar Commemorates 40 Years of Innovation
ANAHEIM, Calif. (Winter 2005 NAMM exhibit #5740)*Peavey proudly introduces two HP Special guitars, a continuation of the well-received, high-end HP Signature Series that Peavey unveiled in 2004. HP guitars are named for Peavey's founder and sole owner, Hartley Peavey, in celebration of the company's 40 years of innovation.
Augmenting the modern refinement of the HP Signature Series with true rock guitar features, our new HP Special guitars include Floyd RoseR-licensed, double-locking tremolos, coil tap-equipped HP Signature humbuckers and an offset basswood body with a sculpted neck joint for access to the upper frets. HP Special guitars also include our oil-finished, asymmetrical birdseye maple neck with graphite reinforcement and precision SchallerR tuning keys; master volume and tone knobs; a three-way pickup selector; and transparent and solid finish options. Rosewood and ebony fretboard options are available in the Peavey Custom Shop.
"HP guitars encompass everything I've learned during my many years of designing and making guitars," says Hartley. "We pioneered a lot of technologies that are now industry standards, including shaping guitars with precise CNC router technology, and we build each HP guitar on that solid foundation, using the finest woods, hardware and pickups for brilliant tone as well as a distinctive, unmistakable appearance."
The HP Series is the ultimate refinement of the playability, tone, style and technology Peavey has developed over the past 40 years.
HP Special guitars will be available in spring 2005 from authorized Peavey retailers.
