Peavey Horizon 1983 Black, Rare Lefty
This is a legacy USA made Peavey Horizon From 1983. It's a solid-built, straight forward guitar that covers a lot of sonic ground. Aside from a few little dings on the back of the neck this one is real clean, a great player, capturing that highly desired Peavey humbucker sound. Frets are in excellent condition.
Hartley Peavey developed his first amplifier in 1961 and went into production in 1965 as Peavey Electronics, sticking to the amp and PA categories until he began working on plans for a guitar in 1976.
Enter the T-60 in 1978, Peavey's first guitar, and they were the first manufacturer to use CNC technology. Peavey’s initial body styles were fairly conservative, but hat changed in 1983 with the introduction of the Mystic and Razer. 1983 was also the year the Horizon came along as their super strat model and all three had a sophisticated circuitry based on the T-60.
The tone controls allow for dual or single coil operation of each pickup independently of each other. The low end of the tone control is humbucking mode, but once beyond about halfway up, the pickup gradually becomes a single coil.
This one is a rare lefty model in black with a maple neck/fretboard, included is the hard case and original paper work.
