    Default Peavey Firenza

    I went to my local Guitar Center today, just because I was bored out of my mind and wanted to mess around with some of their products, and I came across this. Sorry the images are blurry (camera phone). It was $250 used with a hardshell Peavey case.







    I like how the headstock looks like a Wolfie's

    Mike -- you gotta host your photo on photobucket or something so that we can see it.

    It played pretty damn well actually, both the neck and bridge pickups played well. Kinda wish it had a floyd rose on it. It sounded very Olp-ish in a sense. For the price, it's a steal.

    Too bad it isn't a regular strat trem... a Floyd mod would be easy.... but with that weird recessed trem, I don't think I would know where to start. Yuck.

    I wonder if that neck has the wolfgang radius and profile...

    My solution is that if the neck had a Wolfie radius and profile (or just felt good, for that matter), just lunch the body and have a new one made. It sounds like the guitar would be cheap enough to do just that.

    Of course I am the goofball that gets new Gibsons refretted...

    Just my opinion, but I wouldn't mess with putting a Floyd on a guitar you got for $250 (with case!). That's a nice looking ax, nice finish, and it looks like someone put graphite sadles on it too.

    How much are you really going to use a Floyd, especially if this is not going to be a "main" guitar? 5 seconds per song? Then you gotta drill into the neck for the locking nut as well.

    There are enough guitars out there in that price range with Floyds already on them... I'd leave that thing stock, except maybe better pickups and locking tuners if so desired. That's a really cool guitar...

    Just offering my opinion...
