OVERVIEW

Fantastic sound at a very attainable price.

A versatile guitar topped with a luxurious quilted maple top and fitted with an exclusive piezo pickup system that includes Analog Acoustic Modeling (ACM) circuitry for authentic acoustic tones. Hot electric tones come from the high-output ceramic magnet pickups. Acoustic and electric signals can be mixed for completely unique new sounds. Features a 25-1/2" scale, hum/single/hum pickup configuration, high-quality solid basswood body, rosewood fingerboard, dual expanding truss rod, and body binding.

Analog Acoustic Modeling* (ACM*) accurately replicates the sound of an acoustic guitar through dynamics control and by reacting to the guitar's body and string vibrations.

The acoustic sound of the piezo pickups sounds GREAT. The regular pickups are very good also in my opinion. The dark red colored quilt top is very nice, cream colored binding and white pickguard also look very good.I originally got an orange one, also beautiful (now discontinued). Sent in on warranty to PEAVEY because of uneven frets or fretboard (not sure which). Basically a bad neck, lots of fret buzz which is extremely noticeable using piezo pickup. I received a red one. This one has a good neck but has a slightly stripped bottom strap button and also a neck shim, something my first (orange) one needed as well. It took over a month to get the replacement also, putting me past my 45 day return option.Overall, guitar sounds GREAT, but I don't like the shape of this guitar. The neck dive is pretty bad for me (nobody else mentions this, so maybe it's just me). I installed strap locks in new holes which I drilled to change the balance. It helped, but not enough. If not for the acoustic sound, I'd have already gotten rid of it.Also, it's ACTIVE, requires a 9 volt battery for operation, whether you use the piezo/acoustic modeling or not. I don't like this.

Doesn't sound much like an acoustic

Nice guitar- well made- plenty of power-lots of different tone combinations BUT-the piezo pickups are very loud and it doesn't sound like an acoustic at all.

Great Guitar

By JC-bwMW3

from Denver Colorado

I am a professional musician and use this guitar on stage 4 nights a week minimum, It sounds great, plays great and has a really cool look. i own Les Pauls, Strats and some Ibanesz guitars and this is the one I use every night, getting ready to order another one for back up. just in case i break a string. I have started running an A/B switch sending 1 side to my Marshall and side 2 to a compressor and than to the mains of the P.A. I use side 2 with the Piezo acoustic setting, sounds amazing. and i dont need to bring my acoustic guitar to gigs.You can get almost any sound you could want with this guitar, the only negative is on the 2nd Neck position pickup I cant get a real autnentic strat tone (close though) buy this guitar you will love it.

2nd review

By Benny Blanco

from Bronx NY

I posted a review on Feb 5, 2006. I wasn't much of a guitarist at that time, and actually I'm still not much of one. I got used to the neckdive and have overall improved a lot in my playing so that it's not a problem. Still not as comfortable as a strat. I thought about selling or trading this guitar for a strat but I just can't seem to let go of it. It's beautiful, has great sounds, feels good, although again not as comfy as a strat. Also I think the neck is thicker than a strat. Feels solid and well built. The sustain seems weak in the high notes. I changed the volume pot (which went bad) to some gibson part from a local store, and now the guitar plays without any 9 volt battery! But output is slightly lower. I still want a strat, but for now this is great, and this guitar will stay in my small collection.

It's been a year

By Peaveyplayer75

from Georgetown,MA

I got my peavey last november and it's been a year and I have yet to play a more verastile guitar. I'm in a jazz band where with rythmn and the neck humbucker you get all the bluesy sound you could imagine, with rock playing with treble and the bridge humbucker this handles any amount of gain with ease. I personally don't use the single coil that often unless I'm playing songs like confortably numb, etc. The acoustic feature sets this guitar apart from all the others. I feel it's about time Peavey gets some more credit for their guitars it's one of the best kept secrets in music. Even if you go by looks alone this guitar and the trim on the side could be sold for a far higher price. I'm considering getting the peavey JF1 guitar now;a nice hollowbody

Peavey Generation EXp Custom

By Thewrathofsmalty47

from texas

This is my second guitar. From my Squire to this...well that's self explanitory. This is a awesome guitar and I highly recommend it. The active pickups and a the range of this guitar is amazing. You can play blues or heavey rock or metal. Quality however is the only problem. The fretboard seems to buzz...but compared to Peavey in it's early years man they have come along way.

Versatile

By Guitar16

from Greensboro

What a great guitar, especially for the price. With this guitar, you can get a balls to the wall Les Paul tone...or something as mellow as a strat. The piezo sounds great, and the guitar plays well. I've had no problems, and I use this thing on every gig. Being a full time musician, playing with straight ahead jazz bebop groups, fusion groups, big band music, and rock bands...this thing has got it all. I might end up getting another one.

Versatile axe

This guitar has a myriad of tonal possibilities. It is easy to get a mix of acoustic/electric sound or switch back and forth. It is also possible to turn off either electric or acoustic sounds by using the middle position of the smaller switch and simply zero out the volume on the electric or acoustic, since they have thier own volume control. Whichever is left on will still be loud. Guitar is very warm toned, and loud. The neck and fretting could be better though. The neck is wide and it does have a tendency to fret-buzz. This can be adjusted out , however. Overall very good product. Being able to switch from clean/acoustic to power electric is really nice.

Peavey Generation Exp Quilt Top

By MJ Mason, Worship Leader

from Kingsland Ga

Outstanding Guitar. Lives up to and beyond my expectation. I purchased one in OCT 03, and my other guitars have found themselves on the bench. I lead the music in our church. I have a need to keep the flow, until I got my "ACM" I was constantly stopping to switch guitars, to go with the style. Now, I switch from Rockin Blues, to Acoustic finger picking at the flip of a switch. I own a '76 D-55 Guild, '77 Bob Wier "Tree of LIfe" SG style Ibnanez, '65 Guild X150, and many other vintage guitars. All have become sidelined, because of this Peavey ACM... Try one... oh, in the studio... wow......

My First Electric Guitar

By Bill-p9qob

from Ada, MI

This is my first electric guitar so I dont' have a lot to compare to. I purchased it because I wanted to be able to experiment with many different pick-up sounds. This guitar has two humbuckers, a single and a piezo. It required some setup to take care of fret buzz and I put heavier strings on it, which seems to help is stay in tune longer. It had to go in for service because the pots made crackling noises. Peavey took care of it under warranty, no questions asked. If it was lost or stolen, I'd probably buy another one.
