Peavey Guitars
« on: October 29, 2010, 09:28:23 PM »
Anyone here have a Peavey guitar?

I've got a Peavey Generation Triple Single EXP. It's a Tele clone of the Fender Nashville with 3 single coil pickups. For an inexpensive guitar it sounds really good.

Here's a pic.



It's not the greatest picture. I took it with my Blackberry.

It's a nice player. The neck is great although some people don't like a 12" radius neck.

It's also got a nice twang to it.  :)

a 12" radius is pretty comfy i think.  the only time one might want a flatter neck would be if they play alot of slide, or if they have a 7 string, or if they mostly shred.

I like older USA Peavey guitars. The guitars were built well (great necks!)...pickups were just OK though. I have a '94 Axcelerator AX & '89 Falcon. Also previously had a Predator, Predator AX, and Reactor. I miss the Reactor and in the process of getting a replacement.

I tried one of the newer Generations (2 hb w/ACM), but I hated the ACM and the fret wires were too small.

I might have liked the S/S/S model, but did not try one. The one pictoratus has looks great!

I picked this one up yesterday. I'll blame it on pictoratus for posting the photo of his Genny!

Tonerider pickups, CTS pots, Gotoh tuners, and it is in almost new condition. The photo doesn't do it justice.

A friend of mine when I was in the Army had a Peavey Strat style guitar back in the late 90's.  He ran that into a 25W solid state Fender amp with reverb.  Both those items were inexpensive, but he made them sound like a million bucks.  That guy could play anything with that guitar setup.  I believe every bit of it was stock too.

Probably a Peavey Predator. Nice, simple, inexpensive USA guitar. I sold one that I wish I still had. I didn't play it much because I was into the DeArmonds that were being blownout at Sam Ash & Musician's Friend at the time.

I played it through my older Peavey Bandit 112. Through the clean channel, with the bright switch on, it was great...very Fenderish. The same setup is good with the Reactor (Tele). The bright switch was the key, for my ears at least. I didn't like the tone nearly as much without it on.

I couldn't tell you anything about that guitar.  He got it in the early 90's, so who knows what model it was.  Back then, I didn't care about make or style.  A guitar was a guitar...it only needed to feel and sound right....
