Howdy!

Today I got a new (used) guitar off of craigslist for $150! Woot!

First of all, this beast is amazingly set-up! The action is nice and low, it's sounds great and it seems to have some pearloid (MOP?) dots on the fretboard. The neck is nice, thin, and smooth.

It is American made and the pick-ups are decent. I'm not sure exactly how the switches work?

Known history of this individual guitar: It was made sometime mid-1980s; the previous owner bought it in 2001-2002. Some kid had a sticker on it, made evident by the lack of discoloration in one rectangle on the finish. He recently got a Les Paul and this guitar hasn't been played in two years.

I've gotta say, she is gorgeous! Either this thing is amazing or my strat is horribly set up because when I play this beast, my fingers fly!

Enough talk, pics!













If you know any information on this guitar, I'd love to hear it.
GEAR:
Fender MIM HSS Strat

Those mid-80's to early-90's Peaveys are sweet guitars for the price. Never seen one like that...looks pretty damn cool.

Thank you! Umm... It plays better than it sounds unfortunately, and I'm not quite sure why. It played fine when I tried it out, but... I guess something changed in transport.

I'll explain. The higher strings sound pretty good, better than decent; however the low E and A strings sound mediocre. Even when open. I haven't the faintest idea and I've only had it a couple of hours. Any ideas? There doesn't seem to be any fret buzz because I can see it is clear the whole way down.

sounds like it needs a proper set up, take it to a tech. sounds liek it needs a good clean, service among other things. Probably your likely problem. Just get it to a tech who you trust wont screw you and ask him to give it a once over, shouldnt cost you more than $10-15

80s and some 90s Peaveys rival Kramers. The Peavey Nitro is a ****ing awesome guitar.
