Peavey has introduced the new
Mike Stone Signature MS-1
guitar, an exclusive collaboration of QueensrÃ¿che guitarist Mike
Stone and motorcycle designer Erik Buell with the Peavey Custom Shop.
A testament to the creativity and craftsmanship of the Peavey Custom Shop, the MS-1 guitar
features an original contoured mahogany body shape developed by Mike Stone and Erik Buell,
accompanied by a set mahogany neck, twin Seymour Duncan 59 humbucking pickups in the neck
and bridge positions and a two-way adjustable bridge with Peaveyâ€™s patented Dual Compression
Stoneâ€™s friendship with famed motorcycle designer and guitarist Erik Buell led to this collaboration
with the Peavey Custom Shop, and ultimately the new Peavey MS-1 guitar.
â€œErik had a Peavey
guitar with orange and red flames on it,â€� recalls Stone, â€œand one day he said, â€˜Youâ€™re a Peavey guy,
you should play this!â€™ I started playing it and I could just smoke on that thing! Then Peavey sent me
a few HP Special guitars, and they were just as killer. One day I asked him if heâ€™d ever thought about designing a guitar, and it all fell into place from
that moment. Erikâ€™s thing is balance, and his designs tend to be very unique and forward thinking.
For this collaboration I wanted a modern, crushing guitar that can do everything, but be very curvy
and sexy. Peavey was the only company that could help us bring those ideas to life.â€�
The Peavey Custom Shop
features a web-based design application
that takes you step-by-step through the process of designing Peavey musical instruments to your
own specifications. Winner of Adobe Systemsâ€™ prestigious Site of the Day and Best In Show at
Summer 2007 NAMM, it allows you to choose the features on your Peavey guitar, dial in virtually
any color and even upload a custom JPG picture or artwork for your custom instrument.
â€œThe Peavey Custom Shop guitars that I have are probably the best-playing guitars Iâ€™ve ever owned,
adds Stone. â€œThatâ€™s saying a lot, because Iâ€™ve owned hundreds. Thatâ€™s why we wanted to
collaborate with Peavey on this special instrument.â€�
The Peavey MS-1 guitar will be built to order in the Peavey Custom Shop.
