TIPS AND TRICKS ON PLAYING YOUR NEW POWERSLIDE
Your new Peavey PowerSlide guitar is a totally new type of instrument
that incorporates all of the functions of a standard lap steel guitar
in a six-string configuration that makes it easy for standard electric
guitar players to play slide.
The PowerSlide incorporates a unique shape and exclusive design
features, such as a patent-pending, three-point suspension system
and adjustable "Y" strap that allow players to use the PowerSlide
in the horizontal configuration even while standing up. Players can
also play the PowerSlide like a conventional guitar in the vertical
orientation simply by using a standard guitar strap with two-point
suspension.
The specially designed pickup makes available an extremely wide
range of tones, which are augmented by Peavey's patented tone/
mode control to allow the player to adjust from single-coil operation
continuously to dual-coil, hum-canceling mode, with high-end rolloff at
the extreme counterclockwise setting.
Once again, Peavey leads the field with a unique and totally different
product!
Thank you for choosing Peavey. I hope you enjoy your new Peavey
PowerSlide.
