If you are a collector, the original parts are included - yes, the original parts. Not reissue parts. Not parts from another guitar that match. The original parts that came off of this guitar.
If you are a player, parts have been changed/upgraded.



This is a Peavey Hydra from 1984, when the name Peavey still meant something, as did the phrase Made in the USA.
It is fairly self-explanatory, two guitar necks on one body, allowing you to play all of the guitar parts to Stairway to Heaven the same way Jimmy Page did. One is a 12-string. The other a 6-string. It may be a Peavey, but it does have that Gibson 24.75" scale length and 12" radius.

These were not true "Custom Shop" guitars, but they were "Made To Order" (similar to Carvin/Kiesel, but with fewer options) and took 8-12 weeks for delivery.


Plays like a dream. Has been maintained. Has not been abused, but after 40 years has a few bumps.



Specs:
* 12 pounds (40 with case)
* 24.75" scale length
* 12" radius
* hard rock maple neck
* maple fretboard
* fully adjustable steel torsion rod
* slant peg head
* Peavey 14:1 machine heads
* 24 frets (or is that 48?)
* rib cage contour


* 1 volume control, other knobs are disconnected, feel free to create your own schematic to suit your needs
* 4 Seymour Duncan pickups - a little newer, a little more modern sounding than the original P-12 it came with
* 3 two-way switches for the neck and pickup selectors


At 40 years old, yes, the frets have been replaced.
Clear coat on the neck has been removed and the neck re-sealed.


the original
* four Peavey P-12 full range very high output humbuckers with adjustable pole pieces and coil split capable
* two bridges - they show some signs of age, but can be cleaned up
* knobs and switches and etc
