HP 2® Poplar Burl RM Natural Electric Guitar
The Peavey HP 2® Poplar Burl RM is constructed with leading-edge technology, traditional handcrafted methods, 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 stands out with its carved top and offset, asymmetrical body design that offers comfort, proper balance, and maximum playing ease.
These models feature a Poplar Burl top selected for its natural beauty, weight, and tonal qualities. Roasted Maple was chosen for the neck, a process which removes moisture from the wood and prevents it from warping over time. This also helps the guitar maintain its tune. Cream edge binding accents the body.
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.
