Peavey Electric Guitars
Everyone knows Peavey for their amplifiers, speakers and PA systems, but there's a lot more to them than that. Case in point: Peavey electric guitars. These instruments are a welcome departure from Peavey's usual fare, and they've done a great job putting together a selection of guitars that are beginner-friendly but sure to satisfy advanced players as well.
There are a number of options here, so the first thing to think about is deciding which Peavey guitar is the best fit for you. For starters, are you a Walking Dead fan? That may seem like a strange question at first, but not once you've seen the Peavey Walking Dead Rockmaster. This electric guitar really stands out thanks to the graphic art on its basswood body - and even more so for the balanced tone of its humbucking pickup.
If you're looking for a casual axe that you can pick up and play anytime without having to fiddle with tuning, check out the AT-200 Auto Tune Electric Guitar. Peavey has built a push-button automatic Antares tuner into this instrument, so it's ready to play in seconds. Not only that, it also allows you to switch to drop-D, open-G or other alternate tunings just as quickly. This system is great for a set list full of songs played in different tunings, since you won't need an adjustment break between each one: just let the guitar do the work, and keep on playing.
Are you in the jazz and fusion crowd? Rest assured that Peavey hasn't forgotten about you. Take a look at the JF-1 Hollowbody Guitar and you'll find lots to like. For example, a subtly angled neck makes upper frets easy to reach. The JF-1 is lightweight with mellow, rich tone that can stand up to much higher-priced guitars without breaking a sweat.
Peavey has always liked to innovate, and it was their introduction of computerized production in the 1970s that laid the groundwork for the guitars they build today. By pioneering with CNC machines, Peavey put themselves in a position to offer great guitars at affordable price points - and that's good news for all of us.
