PEAVEY NITRO I reviewed by Michael Cox

I love this guitar, I basically slept with it and people use to come from all around to see this guitar, I have worn the frets out and the Kahler system out. Out of all my guitars , this was, the one that felt like it was part of my body. I saw it in the store and when I pick it up in my hands I said this is the one. Beautiful black, sleek looking, it almost play's it's self. Also very important ( it's made in good oh USA) I LOVE MY COUNTRY

My nitro

I have this model nito but with the nitro active type neck. was it ever sold like this? 

Nitro 1

I have the blue nitro 1 all origanle with single humbucker and the khaler fulcrum it's so sweet I think it's worth a bit cause I cant find a blue one anywhere at least not the nitro 1

Blue nitro 1

I also have one, and the original case. Besides you, the only other one I found was in Germany. But, it was just the body. No neck, electronics, nothing. And they wanted $200 US dollars for it! So, yes, I believe ours to be extremely rare. Hold on tight to it. It may just be the kids college funds!
