Peavey Electronics has introduced the Rotor, a high-output, modern metal guitar combining a retro, angular body.

The Rotor is constructed using mahogany for the body and neck and an ebony fretboard for a velvet feel with smooth attack, which is eased by its smooth, no-heel, neck-through-body construction. Peavey's Dual-Compression Bridge system, a string-through design creating a metal-to-metal connection, provides singing sustain and stronger string presence.

Two extra-hot Peavey humbucking pickups give the Rotor its metal tone, with a ceramic magnet design for powerful ouput and biting edge. In addition, the Rotor features a six-in-line headstock; 24 jumbo frets; deep inset jack; two volume knobs; one tone knob; and a three-way, toggle-style pickup selector. Also standard on the Rotor is a custom pau shell binding that tracks around the entire body, neck and headstock, black satin hardware and custom, hollowed tuning keys.

The Rotor EXP guitar will be available in February 2004 .
