1987 to 1989

PEAVEY made the Nitro I Custom between 1987 and 1989. It was a single humbucker superstrat like the Nitro I but with a recessed Kahler 2710 double locking tremolo system. These Nitro Customs also had a different headstock shape to the standard Nitro model. Peavey described the Nitro I Custom as follows (in 1988):

The name "Nitro" says it all .....The Nitro I Custom is a super distortion-class instrument with simplistic function design, a very flat 15" radius on the fingerboard, and black chrome hardware. The bridge and nut locking systems are the finest ..... KAHLER/Rose Licensed systems. Handling, balance, and playability are at the max with one “hot” Alnico humbucker and the two-knob control layout. Concentrate on your music and let the Nitro I do the rest ..... explosive.
