Peavey Announces PXD Vicious Devin Townsend Signature Model Guitar, Webcast by Devin Townsend Project
To celebrate the upcoming release of its PXD Vicious Devin Townsend Signature Model, Peavey -- with Guitar World -- will present an exclusive online performance by The Devin Townsend Project on Tuesday, December 20.
Peavey's PXD Vicious Devin Townsend Signature Model guitar is a new 7-string baritone model that will be available from Peavey retailers in January.
It has a 28-inch baritone scale, seven strings and a maple neck-through-body design that gives the instrument great sustain. The guitar boasts a pair of EMG pickups — including a custom EMG 81 7-string humbucker in the bridge position and an EMG 7-string single coil at the neck — that give the guitar menacing rhythm and lead tones and clean tones in the neck position. This gun-metal gray guitar is appointed with locking tuners and an ebony fretboard with jumbo frets.
“When Peavey and I decided to collaborate on this project, I knew that I wanted an instrument that could crush everything while maintaining a high level of quality and elegance,” said Townsend of The Devin Townsend Project and Strapping Young Lad. “This quest has redefined how I view the guitar. To have a company that knows how to get things done behind me with a metal axe like this is a real sense of power.”
