Peavey announce reissue of the EVH-inspired HP2 offset

Inspired by the design of the Peavey Wolfgang, the company’s longstanding signature model for Eddie Van Halen until his departure from the brand in 2007, the HP2 has already re-entered production, with Peavey’s CEO Hartley Peavey detailing that the first 400 models will be crafted in Europe from NOS tonewoods from the ’90s. 


Boasting a carved maple top and basswood back and sides with cream binding, the Peavey HP2 is renowned for its remarkable resonance and high-end response, perfectly lending it to fast-paced riffage and slippery solos. 


Each model features a 25.5″ scale and a birdseye maple neck and fretboard with contoured heel, with a pair of custom-wound humbuckers being directly mounted into the guitar’s body to minimise feedback. There’s also a three-way toggle switch and two push/pull volume and tone knobs to split the pickup coils and achieve a wide range of tones. 


Elsewhere, the HP2 makes use of Schaller tuners and pearloid tuning pegs, while a Peavey/Floyd Rose licensed locking tremolo allows you to scoop and dive the whammy bar to your heart’s content. The guitars are also available in a range of eye-catching finishes, including Deep Ocean, Tiger Eye, Moonburst and Black.
