Dates of manufacture:
PEAVEY manufactured the MYSTIC between 1983 and 1986. The neck is made from hard rock maple using Peavey's patented bilamination construction to prevent twisting and warping. Inside the neck, between the two maple laminates is a fully adjustable steel truss rod - with rolled threads. This truss rod is adjustable at the nut end, using Peavey's adjustment tool. the guitar has a slant peg head design, with all six machineheads in a straight line.
The body is made from unspecified hardwood, and finished in weather and mark resistant polyester-urethane. It has a double cutaway and rib-cage contour for ease of upper fret access and playing comfort. The body style has a conventional double cutaway couple with two large horns: like a combination of a strat and flying V.
The pickups are very high output full-range humbuckers with blade pole pieces using a unique patented dual/single coil circuit. This allows humbucking or single coil operation of either or both pickups through rotation of the tone controls. The pickups are fully shielded and potted to reduce microphones and electrical interference.
The circuit used in the guitar allows a wide tonal range, without the use of active electronics. The three position pickup selector toggle switch (military grade apparently) allows each pickup to be used independently, or both together when in the middle position. When in this position their tonalities can be blended with the tone control. There is a single volume control which operates both pickups, and two tone controls: one for each pickup. There is a coil tap circuit incorporated into the tone controls.
The guitar uses medium-heavy fret wire: with 18% nickel silver construction. There are 23 frets in total, with a scale lenght of 24.75 inches.
The bridge is a die-cast unit, triple plated in chrome wth adjustable saddles. The chrome plated machine heads have a 14:1 gearing ratio. The nut is made from polycarbonate.
The guitar has a neck tilt adjustment feature, which is used in conjunction with the truss rod adjustment to set the perfect string angle.
