Sometimes themes just present themselves. Last week we pointed you over to Guitarz, who were featuring the Peavey Razer. Now they’re back at it with an entry on the most ’80s model, the Mantis. From GL Wilson:

It has a single beefy humbucker in the bridge position (hey, what else would you need on a guitar so obviously intended to appeal to the metal market?)  …

I have to agree with the comment from Tyler; the pickguard does nothing for me.

Have a look right here.

And stick around for a 1985 Peavey ad that will poke your eyes out.
