STREET PRICE: $2,499.99 MANUFACTURER: Peavey, peavey.com
The Peavey-designed humbucking pickups are treated with a two-step wax dipping process that eliminates microphonic feedback even at extreme volume levels.
The master volume and master tone controls have a push/pull coil-tap switch that allows guitarists to split the coils of each humbucker individually.
THE BOTTOM LINE
After a hiatus, the Peavey HP 2 is back and as good as it ever was, with expressive high-gain pickups, a comfortable, highly playable design and first-class construction and materials.
