Peavey has introduced the new Mike Stone Signature MS-1 guitar, an exclusive collaboration of Queensrÿche 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 Peavey’s patented Dual Compression tailpiece.
Stone’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.
“Erik had a Peavey guitar with orange and red flames on it,� recalls Stone, “and one day he said, ‘You’re a Peavey guy, you should play this!’ 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 he’d ever thought about designing a guitar, and it all fell into place from that moment. Erik’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.�
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 Systems’ 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.
“The Peavey Custom Shop guitars that I have are probably the best-playing guitars I’ve ever owned, adds Stone. “That’s saying a lot, because I’ve owned hundreds. That’s why we wanted to collaborate with Peavey on this special instrument.�
The Peavey MS-1 guitar will be built to order in the Peavey Custom Shop.
