PEAVEY HP 2 TREMOLO ELECTRIC GUITAR IN DEEP OCEAN – SERIAL NUMBER OARCBB1700265, NOS BUILD NO. 265/400
Peavey forms an indisputable part of the EVH legend, partnering with the artist for many years as producer of his now-legendary Wolfgang guitar. To commemorate Eddie’s passing, Peavey are reviving the model, named the HP2 (HP stands for Hartley Peavey). Utilizing a stunning flamed maple carved top, basswood body and birdseye maple neck / fretboard, the first of these new models are being produced as a limited run, made with NOS woods from the original ‘90s production run.
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 color and grain patterns consistent. The stress-relieved lamination also adds increased stability. The HP2 has a 25.5” 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 buttons. The chrome-plated hardware finish completes the look.
The Peavey HP 2’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, center and down configurations. Players will also find a Peavey/Floyd Rose® licensed, double-locking tremolo assembly to complete the guitar. Finishing off the guitar are two push-pull knobs for volume and tone, with the ability to split the pickups individually.
