The eye-catching Peavey Power Slide is a reimagining of the lap steel and slide
guitar concepts, combining elements of both in a patent-pending design exclusively
from Peavey. Unconventional and revolutionary, the Power Slide can be played from a
seated position like a lap steel, while standing like a traditional guitar, or even
horizontally while standing with its unique three-point suspension and special "Y"
strap. This radical design provides unprecedented neck access in the horizontal
playing position.

What you cant do with most lap-steels is walk around on stage with them, writes Matt
Blackett in the May 2011 issue of Guitar Player. With proprietary strap,
the Power Slide becomes a cool live tool. It balances well and the design keeps most
of the playing surface to the left, where you need it. To cut to the chase, this
thing is a blast to play and it sounds great.

The Power Slide features a unique, magnet-loaded pickup with Peaveys patented,
variable coil mode control that continuously shifts the pickup from dual-coil to
single-coil as you rotate the mode control. The effect, pioneered on the
groundbreaking Peavey T-60 electric guitar in the 1970s, is a proprietary Peavey
circuit that gives players incredible control over their tone. With its six-string
configuration, the Power Slide also provides an instantly familiar platform for
guitarists to begin playing lap-style slide guitar in any tuning.

The pickup has a great blend of throaty power and jangly definition, writes
Blackett. Between the volume knob and this coil-cut feature, I could easily get a
big range of tones.

Continued Blackett, In the recording studio, its hard to describe how much vibe this
instrument brings to a song. Spooky glisses, delay-soaked ascensions, trippy
vibrated chordsits hard not to use it on every track.

The Peavey Power Slide ships with Peaveys specially designed Y strap and a padded
gig bag, and is available now from authorized Peavey Retailers
$399.99 U.S. MSRP).
