PEAVEY made the NITRO III Custom between 1987 and 1989. It was a USA made superstrat with HSS pickups and Kahler 2710 locking tremolo. These are great value guitars if you can get hold of one. Peavey described the Nitro III Custom as follows in their 1988 catalog:

"3, 2, 1, 0 “ignition”.....The Nitro III maintains the same feel, balance, and performance at the Nitro I, but offers exceptional tonal versatility. The pickup arrangement is awesome with the Alnico humbucker plus two high-output single coils. The blend of many different sounds is easily controlled with each pickup having its own switch, and the 12-pole humbucker is even capable of “single coil" operation. 5 degree tilted headstock. and black chrome hardware.....It's ready!"
