You think this is a guitar, but it’s actually the most highly evolved weapon of all time. It’s part aphrodisiac, part murder machine, part PhD in physics, part farmer strength, part stealth jet, and, oh yeah, you can play—and play exclusively—absolutely wicked lixxx on it.

It’s got a solid ash body, so it’s pretty much like the black box on an airplane except in instrument form. I keep it next to my bed incase I need to fight an intruder in my house. You know the kind of sexist way women get described in noir novels, that’s the way this guitar would get described.

The maple neck is going to do whatever you want and love it. Tune down to whatever Bongripper plays at? Sure. Tune up to do . . . something? You bet your bottom. This neck can support a family of eight in the depression.

Speaking of grandparents, let’s look at the Granddaddy of ‘Em All—no, not Wrestlemania, but that USA Kahler trem! This is serious business. You ever play guitar on a Slip N Slide after two or three Big Buddy refills of Cherry Pepsi? This is like that, but instead of ending up who-knows-where with a headache, you end up right back where you were. If CC DeVille had this on his guitar for his guitar solo on the Swallow This! live Poison album, he would have still been high on the devil’s dandruff and played every wrong note in the world, but he would have been perfectly in tune.

What are those pickups like? What do those switches do? What really happens to an angel’s wings when a PT Cruiser is compounded into a small cube? Let’s delve in and cut back at the same time: Peavey put a set of pickups which are incredibly responsive to whatever tones you’re looking for while also just sounding great right from jump street. sounding, US-manufactured, and knock-out fantastic in build quality and tone. Think you’ve heard them? Nice thought, but you can't find them on anything except mid-80's Peavey's.

The switches and potentiometers are all top quality, no imported cheap junk here. You can turn any pickup on or off on any combination you want—plus a coil tap in the bridge humbuggy. Turn them all off mid-song if you have to, just Incase someone faints and needs a break from your shredding.

The guts are hand-wired by the fine working-class folks at Peavey HQ in Mississippi 30 years ago. Salt of the earth and none better.

The neck pocket is tighter than a pickle-lid closing contest at one of those ESPN2 World’s Strongest Man competitions. This guitar uses threaded metal inserts cleanly imbedded into the neck to make this thing STRIP PROOF—the exact opposite of how people will feel in regards to their clothing when you play your molten jams on this thing in front of them.

This thing has a few dents and dings that I tried to photograph, but it’s all cosmetic. The Kahler was just setup with fresh strings and it plays like that scrimmage between the 1992 Dream Team: wild and smooth.
