I always wanted an Adrian Vandenburg Peavey, I just didn't want a PINK one. Thank you Hartley Peavey for bringing this guitar back into the game! Out of the box it felt a little stiff, but with a little tweaking I got the feel for it. The binding around the top violin cut was a little sloppy, but not bad enough to make me send it back. The matte finish on the metal parts was dry and powdery, and seemed to grip any screw threads, but loosened up nicely with use. The machine heads are a little close together and don't accommodate a string winder very well, but they are smooth machines. As for the Floyd on this guitar, WOW! Very responsive. After I tweaked the setup and locked it down, I dive bombed this guitar for a good solid 1/2 hour of hard playing and it came right back to tune. The roll off on the treble pot is very defined, you can get a wah effect by rolling in and out. I can't wait to get this on my stage rig! Very nice! I think I have a new favorite guitar!

I tried my hand at several of these, only to find major dissapointment over and over again in the neck through styling change and Peavey's vain attempt at aesthetics. First off, I know my $hit when it comes to playing and guitars.They clearly spent too much time trying to make this guitar look fancy with bindings and stuff. Result, it looks good from 30 feet away, but get closer and you will notice the imperfections and difficulty they had at applying the binding to the hard corners and edges. Often, misplaced and messy, albeit pretty good for the price, but sloppy.Second, the playability is no where near as good as the 2002 and 2003 BOLT ON models. Its tough to get neck throughs to play straight. The BOLT ON version play like a dream. Not these.Third, neck throughs sound a bit hollow and do not ring or sustain as well as a bolt on neck. It therefore sounds somewhat thinner.Conclusion, bring back the BOLT ONS Peavey. They play better! Lose the binding and bring back the 2003 manufacturing.

The 80's Guitar is back!!!

By prs-fan

from Wytheville, VA

See all my reviews

This guitar is like the Charvels from the mid to late 80's. The neck is a little thicker than say, a Jackson/Charvel. This is a better guitar than you might think from Korea. I own four (4) Paul Reed Smith guitars, so I DO know what I'm talking about. For the price, get one. Just don't expect it to be set-up very well. I had to adjust the neck, action, and the tremolo, etc. This is nothing to do if you know what you are doing, if not, take it to someone who knows!! the looks of this guitar is great, the finish is a lot better than I thought it would be.

So You Want The Best?

By Michael StJames

from Chattanooga, TN

People have not even begun to experience a great playing guitar until they have played this Peavey masterpiece. Designed after the ending of Adrian Vandenbergs Signature Series hottest shredding guitar, the V-TYPE model Limited is the Ultimate Metal n Rock Guitar out there. Striaght from the factory this is a fully loaded, ready to rock beast. I have both models, a Vandenberg custom that Ive loved for years, and the V-Type NTB Limited Edition, and both play identical. This is a must guitar for any level player.

Great guitar

By thrashfordeath

from Missouri

See all my reviews

This is a great guitar. I own it in purple, and it's one of the best looking guitars I've seen. The action is very good, and the floyd rose tremelo system is very easy to use once you get used to it, although changing the strings is very time consuming. The only cons are the pickups. The Pickups sound great on clean if you are playing on both of them, but they aren't the greatest for metal. I think I want to maybe switch them out for some higher output pickups, and maybe buy a d-tuna.

Watch your back ESP !!!!

By Nightwishmaster

from Southeast USA

For those of you who swear up and down that ESP and Jackson corner the market on "metal" guitars, be warned. As an avid Ibanez and Jackson fan, I saw that Peavey was giving some OOOMPH to their classic Vandenberg design. I thought I'd give it a whirl. I opened the box, did a slight bit of tweaking the set up. My jaw has been on the ground since. The stock pups are hot and screaming! The neck is thicker and meatier and more Gibson like. The abalone and cream binding is stunning. The licensed Floyd is one of the best I've ever played ( second only to the "Edge"). For the money, I'd take this over an ESP any day. If Peavey continues this direction, they will have a monster on their hands. If you play heavy, this is worth every dime. I want the string-thru version next!!!

Great Guitar

By Anonymous

The pickups are great, no noise. The Licensed Trem is great, the neck plays nice, and it stays in tune for ever. Overall this is great for anybody needing a good guitar that won't break the bank.

A kick a** guitar

By Jared Dowty

from Florence, MT

Though the double-locking system is quite annoying, just to get that part out of the way. Other than that, the playability and looks of this guitar are just damn sexy. If your a experienced guitarist on a tight budget looking for a fufilling ax for your rig, then you gotta get this. It's totally great for hard rock and will look great on stage.

Superior Guitar

By Mike-TJUPf

from Largo, Florida

See all my reviews

This is a great guitar, I have demoed many guitars and this one is right up there with the some of the best I have played. I have found it to be comparable to the Jackson Phil Collin, and the old Ibanez Frank Gambale guitars in playing style and sound. The hot ceramic pickups make this guitar sing. Easy to play super fast 24 3/4" neck is nice too. Cant beat it for the price...go get one!

best guitar ive ever played

By dio blows

from racine wi

i dont own this exact model but everythings the same on mine cept it was made in the u.s. this guitar is solid all around, the neck is pretty thin, the fret board is ebony making for smoothe and lightning fast fret work, and the frets themselves are huge! the shape of the body is drop dead gorgeous, the floyd rose is amazingly responsive and will never throw your strings out of tune, the pickups are pretty nice but not as responsive to pinch and tremalo harmonics as they could be so im gonna get a dimebucker soon,but thats just my style.

Pretty Good!!!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I was at a local music store, looking for a wild axe, when I happened to stumble upon this beast. I picked it up and felt right at home. It has a glossy finish, neck-thru design for superb playing, full body and neck binding, 24 frets, a good floyd rose, and hot pickups. The floyd rose made for easy pull-ups and major divebombs. The pickups were great for shredding and handled anything I threw at them. The clean wasd good also. If you are looking for a stage present/ready axe, I suggest you check this out.

Great Guitar!

I've used this countless times at this music store, and it's the best guitar I've played. It was used and it was still great, so I can only imagine how much better it is new.

Excellent Guitar

By jerzey

from New Jersey

Great guitar! I bought this about a year ago and love it. I use this guitar in my hardcore/metal band and its doing excellent. Only problems I have is that in drop c, i lose the 15th and i think 16th frets on my low e, all I get is a twangy noise (not that I use those frets but thought it important to include in the review). The only other negative, is that it doesn't give me too good of a clean sound when all the distortion is off. It has great looks (I personally like the grover tuners that come with it). This is also a pretty sturdy guitar; I dropped it twice and got only a tiny chip and the play is not affected. After these incidents I purchased the Dunlop straplocks (which so far are working great). Overrall, I give this guitar a 10.

Smokin'!!!

By Lynch Fan

from Wisconsin

For the money, no contest it's the best guitar in this price range. The floyd is probibly the best copy of the original that's on the market right now. I traded mine to a guy with another guitar for an Yngwie Signature model, I regret it. Don't get me wrong I love strats but I'm going to buy another V-type, and the string-thru version too!

I played this guitar at a local music store the other day. This thing just blew me away. I've never played a guitar that could hit the pinched harmonics so well. Or natural harmonics too. The pick ups are all around powerful.
