Peavey Explorer Guitars

The Peavey Explorer is actually just an Explorer shaped guitar. It is actually called the Peavey Rotor. It has been reviewed over at Ultimate Guitar as well as a few other guitar forums around the internet.

The official Peavey description is right here.

Researching this guitar I see there is also another model resembling the Explorer called the PXD series supposedly for metal guitarists. The official info page for this series of guitars can no longer be found at I would imagine because it was discontinued.

Peavey Explorer Shaped GuitarThe newer models that even closely resemble and Explorer would be the Tragic series and the Void series, but these are not the Explorer shape we have come to know and love, but a variance. No mention of Peavey re-introducing the Rotor any time soon.

I have personally owned and intermittently played a Peavey guitar for close to twenty five years. I have never owned or played a Rotor, but a different model all together. My experience with Peavey, in general, has been good.

Gripes that I have always has include the weight of the guitar, which I felt is a bit much. I have also felt that the thickness of the neck overall was on the heavy side. Positives from my experience with Peavey guitars and the spectacular finish and quality.

Styling and comfort have always been above average. There were great guitars coming out of Asia when I bought my last Peavey, but it has been quite a few years now and I can't give an accurate review of the newest models.

Other than these guitars being produced in Korea and Indonesia. This is all the specific info I have right now but if you'd like to add to this description I'd appreciate any information sent to me right here.

I'm looking for descriptions, pictures, production years, availablilty, and that sort of info. If you can help out, please do. If you are looking to buy or get an idea on prices, Same Day Music stocks Peavey equipment here.
