The Peavey HP 2 is constructed with leading-edge technology and traditional handcrafted methods, along with professional-quality upgrades and customizations. When a guitar bears the initials of Peavey founder and CEO Hartley Peavey, players can expect an iconic design with its own unique flair.

While the esthetic is classic, the HP 2 undoubtedly stands out with its carved top and offset, asymmetrical body design that offers comfort, proper balance, and maximum playing ease. Maple was chosen for the top and basswood for the back. Peavey selected these hardwoods not only for their natural beauty and weight characteristics, but also for their specific tonal qualities. Cream edge binding accents the body.

At the select birdseye maple neck and fingerboard, players will find unmatched stability and playability. 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 HP 2 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 read more 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.

I’ve always been somewhat skeptical of branding based on an owners name. But having held this instrument I can understand why. The HP2 is handcrafted in the Czech Republic, mine using 30-year-old new original stock Birdseye maple. NOS is stamped on the back of the head stock.If you know the story behind this guitar, I think this small detail reveals why this guitar holds Hartley Peavey‘s name. I think he remembered why it was made, I think he remembers working with the original inspiration. You can definitely see it in the detail and quality in this guitar.Into it:Pros:-Stunning finish - Flawless.-The neck is made from a single piece of Birdseye maple with detail to matching the grain of the top and back of the neck.– The double dipped humbucker‘s or completely noiseless. I agree that tone is subjective – but I don’t really have another guitar to compare this to other than the original Wolfgang. -The humbucker‘s can be split – I’ve heard people go either way on liking or hating this feature but the tones are very versatile. Cons: If you don’t have one, that’s a con. I might change the case if I absolutely had to change something, but then again- I think it’s pretty much perfect too.
