Peavey HP 2 Guitar
 Peavey HP 2 Guitar 
Peavey Electronics® has the HP™2 Guitar--a USA-made guitar with a carved top and an offset, asymmetrical body made of maple for the top and basswood for the back. You can also get an all basswood body if you prefer. Also available is either cream or black-edge colored bindings to trim out the body.

The bolt-on neck is made using birds-eye maple for it and the fingerboard and there is a graphite reinforcement bar and adjustable steel torsion rod. 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 1/2-inch scale length, 22 jumbo frets and a 15-inch fingerboard radius. The 10-degree tilt-back headstock has Schaller® tuning machines with a choice of either pearloid or cream buttons.

You get two custom-wound Peavey humbucking pickups mounted directly on the body that are made using a two-step wax-dipping process that provides ultra-low noise operation and resistance to microphonic feedback.

There is a quality Switchcraft® 3-way toggle pickup switch coupled with two push-pull knobs for volume and tone, with the ability to split the pickups individually. You can choose either a Peavey/Floyd Rose® licensed, double-locking tremolo assembly or a Tune-O-Matic/stop tailpiece fixed-bridge.
