Sound — 10
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!
Overall Impression — 10
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!
Reliability & Durability — 9
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!

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.
