    Default Peavey HP Special Discontinued???

    I was talking to a Peavey dealer today and said the HP Special is discontinued?

    Anyone else heard this or could add more info?

    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    There were several Peavey "HP" models, including the HP Signature and the HP Signature Select, the former of which was discontinued a while back (it was Peavey's custom shop 24 3/4" scale LP-syle guitar). It's possible he was confusing models. On the other hand, Peavey's high-end guitars have never really done all that well, with the exception of the Wolfgang, of course.

    I hope the guy was mistaken... I played a HP Special at the local shop the other day (non-Floyd model) and it was an excellent guitar. Extremely similar to the wolfgang of course -- I really liked the feel of the thing. Would be too bad if Peavey gave up on them unless they come out with something similar or just rename the line.

    The guy said the HP Special. The "Wolfgang replacement".

    Peavey have been phasing out the High end models for several years now. I haven't seen anything not from overseas in a shop in years. They sold out to MF when Hartly handed over the reins and its been plummeting ever since
