Peavey announces an exclusive webcast to celebrate the release of the PXD Vicious Devin Townsend Signature Model 19-Dec-11
Peavey is celebrating the upcoming release of the Peavey PXD Vicious Devin Townsend Signature Model, the guitarist's new 7-string baritone guitar, by presenting an exclusive online concert event featuring The Devin Townsend Project on Tuesday, December 20.
Peavey and Guitar World are joining forces to bring The Devin Townsend Project live performance to music fans online at www.peavey.com/devintownsend.
Here's all the details directly from Peavey:
The PXD Vicious Devin Townsend Signature Model has a 28" baritone scale, seven strings and a maple neck-through-body design that gives the instrument incredible sustain. A pair of EMG pickups--including a custom EMG 81 7-string humbucker in the bridge position and an EMG 7-string single coil at the neck--give Devin's Vicious guitar menacing rhythm and lead tones, as well as striking clean tones in the neck position. This gun-metal gray guitar is appointed with locking tuners and an ebony fretboard with jumbo frets. "When Peavey and I decided to collaborate on this project, I knew that I wanted an instrument that could crush everything while maintaining a high level of quality and elegance," said Townsend, the renowned producer and mastermind of The Devin Townsend Project and Strapping Young Lad. "This quest has redefined how I view the guitar. To have a company that knows how to get things done behind me with a metal axe like this is a real sense of power."
Devin Townsend's illustrious body of work includes The Devin Townsend Project, Strapping Young Lad, Steve Vai and numerous other projects, as well as production credits for Lamb of God, Bleeding Through, Darkest Hour, A Life Once Lost and Soilwork.
