Features: Tangerine / Pearl Silver / Topaz Blue. The licensed FR Tremolo works very fine and the Pickups brings a lot of power. Best for Rock and Heavy Metal! The Bridge PU is a custom wounded ceramic loaded Humbucker. The Neck PU is a Minihumbucker, also custom wounded. Warm and creamy sound! One Volume and one Tonecontroller are mounted and between it is the 3 way switch to choose the Pickup configuration. The Tuner are Grovers. It have a great Inlay on the 12th fret. 2 PinUpgirls! // 9

Sound: Heavy Metal is the homebase of this guitar! I use this Powerstrat with my Hughes & Kettner Coreblade Halfstack. The Sound is very powerful and clear. I love the unbelievable sutain of this guitar and when you love overtones you will love this guitar! The Neck PU is ready for creamy and warm sounds. Incredible! // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: I've bought this guitar as used, but in very good condition. 2 years ago this one hangs new in a German store. I'm the second owner. This Peavey is processed very well! Perfect paint, perfect frets, perfect electrics and nice rubberized knobs for sweaty fingers. // 9

Reliability & Durability: This is a real live guitar! Lightwight and easy to handle. The neck is thin and it is real fun to play it! On this guitar are mounted security straplocks. I would use it live without a backup! The hardware is made for hard gigs. This guitar is made for heavy metal... For nothing else! // 9

Overall Impression: I play Metal and this is the real guitar for it! The Sound and the style is great. My dream is to own every color version of this V-Type. I own a Korean V-Type but this is a completely different instrument. The Koreans are great stuff but this American model is amazing! // 10
