Devin Townsend PXD Vicious Signature - Specs & Price confirmed

Peavey Launches Latest PXD? Vicious Devin Townsend Signature M... - Devin Townsend's MySpace Blog |



At $1199 MSRP, that'll bring it to around $999 or so retail, so I'm pretty excited! I need to start savin' up.

I'm assuming he's going to want to mass produce these rack pies, and why not? I love racks, I love pies, so put them together and you have pie covered titties. - JJ

That looks amazing - but for the same price is 3120, which I'd rather have. Maybe.

Unless, in the rare occasion, it has a neck that fits my hands.

Pretty sick. Although i think the Single EMG looks terrible. 2 EMG humbuckers would look better. But aleast it's something different.

Thats freaking awesome at that price. Such a niche instrument

I actually like the headstock though, normally those kind of headstocks are huge turn offs.

I'm loving the look of this but damn my empty wallet and the fact that wielding any V makes me look like an ass.

That looks pretty sick! I wouldn't mind owning one, one of the few Vs I like.

I wouldn't mind having another Peavey guitar. The Tele-bodied Generation I had back in the early 90s was a nice guitar - well built, with good sounding Peavey made active pickups in it. The fact that this newest Peavey is a 7-string, makes it that much more desirable to me. Its 28" scale length, is quite the trip! BUT, it would have to NOT suffer from the neck dive that so many Vs have, before I'd seriously consider buying it. I don't much care to be fighting neck dive while playing - suede guitar straps don't always solve the problem.

That close-up of this guitar I saw from NAMM looked terrible but it doesn't look bad here.

awesome! the fact that it's 28" scale and not 27" scale makes this 10 times more awesome too! and the fact that it has an 81-7 and not a 707, as well as it having a single coil in the neck position, makes it even more so!

i kinda want one, just because! i'd play some serious metal with that thing!

I think that was a 6 string non sig Vicious or whatever this V model is called.

This is the first.

Though, technically they've been making them since the TW series. This is the first time they've been in a small[er] casing.

Its actually a pretty nice looking guitar, the head stock looks kinda cool. At 28" I couldnt see myself ever buying one though I just dont see the point in such a long scale and I dont want to have to make epic streches

Since Devy tunes to Open C Major with a low G most of the time, he needs the low string to sound tight, and not muddy; something very hard to do on a Standard scale 7.

Gah, I can't decide to either get this or the new BC Rich Stealth 7... that or get the new Ibanez SRT805DX Bass.

obviously this thing! itīs got a baritone scale and a killer sense of simplicity! and alder body wings! itīs a made-for-tightness guitar!!!

also, itīs not hard to do stretches on 28" scale. stretching starts to get hard when you approach 30" scale. on a 28" scale, i can easily do stretches for chords.

Well I am a Bass player predominantly, so I am used to 34" and 35" scale stretches.

Hell I could sell my Les Paul and have the money to buy both the V and the Bass with cash to spare.
