Marvel and Peavey Team Up to Create Superhero Guitars
Question: What's the only way a guitar player could possibly look any cooler/hotter/sexier? Answer: If the guitar had a drawing of Wolverine all over it, as made plain by these photos of new instruments by Peavey Electronics featuring everyone's favorite mutant as well as several other popular Marvel Comics superheroes. The line includes guitars both acoustic and electric and in a range of sizes. Naturally, there are is a handsome Marvel strap as well. These fine items are meant to be on sale this summer but don't seem to be available yet, although you may inspect them after the jump.
Musicians of every skill level, from beginner to pro, can become real guitar heroes with these new musical instruments exclusively from Peavey, which immortalize Marvel Super Heroes Captain America, Thor, Wolverine, X-Men, Spider-Man, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk in highly detailed artwork on guitars, percussion instruments and accessories.
"From the largest and loudest sound systems on the planet to iconic comic superheroes, Peavey and Marvel are both known for larger-than-life creations," said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics. "Musicians, music fans and comic aficionados alike will find a lot of fun and inspiration in these new musical instruments featuring their favorite Marvel Super Heroes."
Peavey will kick off the partnership in summer 2011 with a half-size Peavey acoustic guitar featuring the Marvel Super Heroes, followed by a three-quarter size Peavey electric guitar and the full-size Peavey Rockmaster® electric guitar. Peavey will also debut guitar picks and straps featuring the Marvel Super Heroes, including fan favorites like Ghost Rider and Punisher.
If Marvel-style guitars aren't your thing, perhaps you'd prefer an instrument designed by Camilla D'Errico?
