    What do you guys think. I think the finishes look sick but I don't like the timing. Feels like they are trying to cash in on Ed's death. Any other time and I'd probably be psyched. I already have the real deal anyway. I'll try to post some pics

    Note that this probably took a lot of advance planning before they could release it. I'd say it is a coincidence that it happened to be ready now.

    Also huge increase in demand for EVH products could have been a motivator to release at this time.
    There's a thin line between genius and insanity. I like to dance on it.

    "It's all success if it's what you need. Do what you like and do it honestly"

    "If you want to be a rock star or just be famous, then run down the street naked, you'll make the news or something. But if you want music to be your livelihood, then play, play, play and play! And eventually you'll get to where you want to be." RIP EVH

    Peavey kind of makes me sick as a company these days. Think I'm removing their logo from my 5150.

    For one, when Hartley sold out his employees and moved all amp production to China after promising to all the world on television how they wouldn't close the Meridian plant.

    And now this, trying to cash in on EVH. I imagine they think the estate might be too busy to handle a lawsuit. I can't believe they are asking a premium price for "luthiers in Europe". Why can't they open the old shop in America and rehire some of those old luthiers who worked with Ed? It's impossible to me that a guitar could be produced cheaper in Europe unless they are talking about eastern europe or using some sort of loophole for them to be made in China but "inspected" in Europe or whatever.

    Tldr, FUCK Peavey, they will never get a dime and I will talk shit on their products from now on. If you want a wolfgang buy one from EVH gear.

    Obviously they are trying to cash in on Edís death. I think thatís pathetic but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Guys, these Peavey HPs are shit guitars. Yea, the look great, but the quality control on these guitars are the worst I’ve ever seen. I bought 2 of these guitars, and they are crap. After I bought and returned the first one, I thought maybe I got a lemon, I’ll get another to give them a second chance and WOW another stinker. I have a thread or comments on this board somewhere. Stay away from these guitars.

    The only Peavey I have is a purple 95/96 patent pending Wolf.
    I just sold a Peavey 6505+112 to a drummer for $300.00 Fuck it

    This has been in the planning for a while. I read about them being re released earlier this year.

    I'm surprised they are doing it though. They didnt really seem to be a big success the first time around.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    These debuted a couple years ago at NAMM.

    These arenít new. Theyíre not cashing in on Edís death.

    The guys who are cashing in on Edís death are the fans who are trying to sell their Peavey Wolfgangís for over $5000 or their first year EVH Wolfgangís for over $10,000.

    Saw one of the Frankieís up on Reverb for $65,000 last night. Considering they were going for half of their original retail price before Edís death, Iíd say thatís cashing in.

    I think you guys are right. I lost all respect for peavey after the undercover boss episode. I'll never sell my peavey evh stuff though. Different company back then. Does anybody know where they are producing these guitars, I read somewhere it said they were employing some of the best luthiers that Europe had to offer. Wtf does that mean? Is that peavey speak for made in china?

    Apparently the word is that theyíre being made in Czech factory that makes the Spector basses. Those sell for around $2500 new so the price on the new HP2 is right in line with those.

    Iíll never buy one. Iím from Mississippi so Iíve always been a Peavey loyalist, I play through a Peavey vypyr right now as a matter of fact. But once I get enough saved up to buy that 5150iii 15 watt head and 12in extension cabinet thatíll change. Iíll always keep my Peavey Wolfgang, but once I get an EVH Wolfgang thatíll be retired as well. Iím sure this has been in the works for a while but itís sickening that they announce it so soon after Ed died. Either way, Peavey can suck it
