Peavey has resumed production of the HP 2 electric guitar. The guitar was first issued as an update to the HP in 2017, which itself was a continuation of the Wolfgang guitar, Eddie Van Halen’s signature model with Peavey before he split with the brand in 2004.
The HP 2 itself is a bolt-on guitar with a contoured neck heel, with a birdseye maple neck and fretboard. Its body consists of a maple top and basswood back. As an added bonus, the woods used in the first 400 guitars made have been stored in a safe and secure environment for nearly 30 years. Other construction notes include a 25.5-inch scale length, 22 jumbo frets, and 15-inch fingerboard radius. The bridge is a Peavey/Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo.
In terms of electronics, there’s a three-way Switchcraft toggle switch selecting between two custom-wound Peavey humbuckers, each splittable thanks to the push-pull volume and tone pots.
The instrument lists for $2999.99, and ships with a hardshell case. Find out more at peavey.com.
