Peavey UK are delighted to announce the immediate availability of Peavey HP™2 Series guitars in the UK & Ireland.
Handcrafted in Europe and constructed using leading-edge technology and traditional handcrafting methods, and featuring professional-quality upgrades and customizations, the Peavey HP2 undoubtedly stands out with its carved top and offset, asymmetrical body design that offers comfort, proper balance, and maximum playing ease.
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 colour and grain patterns consistent. The stress-relieved lamination also adds increased stability.
The HP2 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 or cream buttons. The chrome-plated hardware finish completes the look.
The HP2’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, centre and down configurations.
Players will also find a Peavey/Floyd Rose® licensed, double-locking tremolo assembly to complete the guitar. Finishing off the HP2 are two push-pull knobs for volume and tone, with the ability to split the pickups individually.
Available in four stunning finishes – Black, Deep Ocean, Moon Burst, Tiger Eye – the Peavey HP™2 Tremolo retails for £2560.00 and is available to order now exclusively through UK Distributors Barnes & Mullins. www.bandm.co.uk
