Peavey have introduced the new Omniac JD USA guitar, designed with rock 'n' roll guitar legend Jerry Donahue. The signature Omniac corrals five groundbreaking rock tones into a fully modern, expertly crafted guitar. When it comes to the time-tested single-coil tones that helped define rock 'n roll guitar, the most influential guitar and pickup designs were created prior to the mid-1950s in two Fender instruments the Telecaster and the Stratocaster. Peavey's claim is that until now, working guitarists would have to drag at least two guitars to a gig or session in order to capture all of these celebrated rock tones and that the Omniac captures the best of these tones in one two-pickup instrument. The secret is a unique electronics package that includes a Seymour Duncan pickup set including the specially wired Jerry Donahue Signature pickup in the bridge position and a proprietary five-way selector switch that reveals the five classic guitar tones. "The Omniac is a finely crafted guitar," says Donahue, "and a workhorse for anyone who wants to access these appealing warm and bright tones without having to haul around a bunch of instruments. I've respected Peavey guitars for quite some time, and this is a very special guitar." In addition, Donahue wanted the Omniac to maintain very consistent output. "If you're going through stomp boxes or want to get more gain, you shouldn't have to run and adjust your effects or amp every time you switch tones," he explains. The Omniac guitar will be available in the second quarter of 2005 from authorized Peavey dealers. Main Features
