Peavey proudly introduces the new HP™ Single Cut Series, a trio of finely crafted single-cut guitars that combine classic tones and style with modern Peavey playability.
The HP Single Cut Series includes three models with humbucking pickups, ceramic loaded for warmth, punch and presence, and harmonically positioned and frequency calibrated for each guitar. The HP SC-1 and HP SC-2 are elegant two-pickup guitars, while the HP SC-3 is a three-pickup monster with an array of possible tones. In addition to the three-way toggle switch included on all HP Single Cut models, the HP SC-3 has a pull pot that switches the middle pickup on and off. All HP Single Cut guitars feature treble-compensated volume controls that enhance pickup clarity at low volume levels.
HP Single Cut guitars are crafted from basswood with an integral centre body section, carved top and a deep lower cutaway with scoop for extended access to the upper register. The HP SC-3 and HP SC-2 feature a set hard rock maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, while the HP SC-1 has the same D-shaped neck but with a four-bolt attachment that includes a steel plate for maximum body-to-neck contact.
The HP SC-3 is available in gloss black and gloss white with gold hardware and block pearloid fret inlays. The HP SC-2 and HP SC-1 boast gloss black, cherry burst and vintage tobacco burst finishes, with chrome hardware and standard dot inlays. All three models use die-cast tuners with a 15:1 gear ratio.
