This is something I do for fun.  Mostly, I just enjoy the guitars, the music and everything that goes with it!  I became an authorized Peavey dealer in late 2004 with the sole purpose of dealing with the Custom Shop guitars.  I have sold well over 100 HP Special guitars on this site as a Peavey dealer in the past couple years. 

ALL guitars include the original hardshell case  and are NEW with warranty unless otherwise noted.  You can contact me at knappg@att.net if you are interested in any of these guitars.  I can take Paypal with a confirmed address, money orders, cashiers checks, wire transfers and personal checks with a holding period for them to clear.  I will ship internationally.  Shipping to most international destinations in Europe and other areas runs between $100 and $150 ninety percent of the time.

Update 09-09-16:   Peavey closed the custom shop along with U.S. guitar production indefinitely, early in 2010.  The HP Special will never be made again and guitar production in the U.S. is likely gone for good. The reality is that guitars were a very small part of Peavey's business and it was a tough economic climate where almost nobody was making money at it.  I may sell a few HP's from my personal collection if I can ever decide what I am willing to part with.  I have too many guitars but it is still tough!  I will list them below when I figure it out.  Right now everything that was listed is sold.  Right now I just keep the site going for reference material as a service to others interested in these guitars.
