The culmination of 39 years of designing, engineering, and manufacturing guitars.
Named after Peavey's founder and CEO, Hartley Peavey, the HP Signature electric guitar is the ultimate refinement of the playability, tone, style, and technology Peavey has developed over the past 39 years. The Peavey EXP is built on a solid foundation, using the finest selected woods, hardware, and pickups for brilliant tone as well as a distinctive, unmistakable appearance.
Constructed using warm, resonant mahogany for the body and neck, Peavey's patented Dual-Compression Bridge for longer sustain, and a solid quilt maple archtop to sweeten the tone, there isn't a bad sound to be had in this guitar. The Dual-Compression Bridge system is a unique, string-through design creating a metal-to-metal connection for singing sustain and stronger string presence.
The Peavey EXP also features a nicely-finished rosewood fretboard for a velvet feel with smooth attack. 2 of Peavey's patented, dual-wound, hum-canceling pickups provide high output and unmatched tone. Also features quality Grover tuners, 2 volume knobs, one tone knob, and a 3-way, toggle-style pickup selector.

This guitar has absolutely wonderful action. the ease of sliding up and down the neck, and flying through scales is outstanding. It even seems like pick harmmonics are easier. Very pretty wonderful action, stupendouse sound!!!
If your looking for a guitar that plays great and looks great, look no further!
It is hard to find a value like this one. This guitar plays great and it looks good too. Guitars that cost twice this much would have a hard time beating this little work horse. If you buy this you will not be disappointed.
Just received my HP tiger eye EXP yesterday. Right out of the box I notice this guitar has a great finish and seems well made. It was very ovious the tiger eye finish isn't exactly what is shown in the pictures and has a much more yellow than red tint to it. I wasn't real happy with the difference in color but the quality was right up there with more expensive models. A full set up will be required and was not very good right out of the box. The hums and string height needed adjustment and of course the strings had to go. I also noticed that some of the fret ends were a bit rough and may catch a string in some places. I haven't had a chance to play it but if its anything like some of the earlier post...It will be sweet.
As far as the guitar goes it has the look, and the fit and finish of guitars twice the price. I was a bit surprised at how well it sounded and played. The pickups are very nice with great tone and bite. The Neck is amazing with the ebony fretboard that plays very smooth. If you're looking for a guitar that feels like a Les Paul and has a similar tone but a 2 octave range with a fast fretboard- this is the monster. If there is any negative it's the fact that all 2 octave necks force the pickups closer together unless you go with a baritone stlye or long scale length which is a very different instrument.This is a great buy
One day I was passing time at a guitar shop. I checked out the fenders, gibsons, then picked up the Peavey Signature EXP (didn't look close at first). After fingering the neck, I was stunned. This guitar seemed custom made for me. The feel was so natural, and the neck action was far superior to the others. I looked at the guitar brand and say it was a Peavey. Wow, I had never tried a peavey guitar. I bought it. I was so impressed with the guitar that I later bought a Peavey Signature Custom. I did have the pickups replaced due to not being totally satisfied with the sound quality on the signature EXP. I now use the EXP as a practice guitar and use the Signature Custom for gigs. The neck action on the EXP is extraordinary. Other guitars I have/or owned include a Gibson Custom, Fender Statocaster, Takamine acoustic 12 string, and now the 2 peaveys.
I can acheive great tone, and sounds great with distortion and clean. It can achieve great bluesy tones, and works nice with some EVH-style distortion. I chose this over a Jack Daniel's guitar. Stays in tune nicely, but the A-string broke the next day. With my regular Ernie Ball .10 strings, though, everything is perfect.
This is the best guitar I have ever played. It is the first guitar i have ever taken out of the box that didnt need fixing. It can go from a nice distortion to a warm blues tone no prob. It has a great tone and a lighter feel.
ord problem After replacing all of the pots, and going to medium strings, this guitar is the greatest. Peavey sent me the new pots to replace the defective ones. With light guage strings, the chords sound out of tune due to the large frets. After going to medium strings, the chwas gone!!! Great Guitar,
It's a really nice guitar. I got the cherryburst, and as the "burst" would imply, the paint is different from the picture shown on most sites. It still looks incredible though. The neck does have inlays on it, which I was hoping it wouldn't have. Anyway, the sounds that come out of this instrument are definitely of a pleasant nature. It's an excellent guitar for the money. Nevermind that it was made in Korea, or is a Peavey, from a purely musical perspective, this guitar is well crafted and sounds brilliant.I exist.
