    Default Peavey HP Special

    I know about a year ago there was a thread about the future HP Special. Peavey's attempt to recreate the success of the Wolfgang.

    I just received word that by early next week I should get my Custom HP Special. I can't wait to try it out. It has taken nearly a year to get it and the anticipation is killing me. I believe at this time less than 10 have been completed. I met a guy through the Peavey Guitar forums (he has the purple one) who just got his and he says it just smokes his Wolfgang(mostly because of the coil taps). I guess I will have to wait to find out. I also saw that one of the guitar players from the Trans Siberian Orchestra was using a black HP Special.

    For those who are interested there are some pics of my guitar posted on wolfgangguitars.com. My guitar doesn't have recessed controls and knobs (which I don't believe is an option on future orders).

    He is a link to my guitar.

    Default Beautiful Guitar!

    That green is just bad ass! You should call it the Grinch! If you don't mind me asking first, what is the holdup on these guitars? Why so long to get em out? And finally what kind of coin are people dropping on these?

    Thanks and have fun breaking that mother in!

    I am not sure what the hold up is. I think their was and still is problems with their machinery. I believe most of the HP Specials are being made pretty much by hand right now by Tim Litchfield at the Custom shop until their machines are up and running. I believe Tim is incharge of special project guitars. I think that is why there is so few of them at this point. This is just an assumption because no one really gave any answers at Peavey about the delay. However, I heard they are going to display some at NAMM this year.

    As far as money I believe I paid just a little over $1,700 bucks for this guitar. That was with the 40% discount off list price. Here is the most updated price list until Peavey puts one on their site.

    Thanks...

    Thanks for the info. I just can't believe Hartley Peavey doesn't have his shit together on this guitar especially with the success of the Wolfgang. You would think just like the 6505 the would have been ready to go. You know they knew Ed was gone way before he was so what gives? Pretty good price for such a quality piece! They will probably be even less when mass production occurs if it ever does! I want one, but just won't pay them up front for a guitar I might get in a year. By the way, why did you get a 40% discount of list?

    I got my discount through wolfgangguitars.com. I am pretty sure most dealers were also offering the same discount when you placed an order for a Custom Wolfgang.
