1988 Original Peavey Vandenberg Signature Guitar in Rock It Pink W/OHSC.

The Vandenberg Signature, one of two killer models that Peavey ever made, the original Wolfgang being the other, in by FAR the most sought after, coolest color: Rock It Pink!

This example is not only a VERY low serial number, it is ridiculously clean. I have had my hands on many Vandenberg’s over the years and I have never seen one in this clean of condition until now.

7.7 lbs.

All stock and original.***

***After playing the guitar a bit, I was not real enamoured with the original humbucker. I had my guitar tech replace it with a Seymour Duncan TB-11 Custom Custom Trembucker which sounds awesome. The original pickup is included of course, but the Duncan is installed at the moment.

The neck is thin and fast, just like you remember these being. This guitar practically plays itself.

No fret wear to speak on, no dents or dings, take a look at the pictures. If you can find a clean example than this, I will kiss your ass.

Comes as pictured with original Peavey hard case.

If you have been searching for one of these Vandenberg’s, this is THE one. It just doesn’t get any better for a very rare guitar to begin with, made even more rare by the amazing condition.



Dates of manufacture:

1988 to 1994


PEAVEY produced the VANDENBERG SIGNATURE between 1988 and 1994. There were two editions of this model. The Vandenberg Signature first edition had a medium weight poplar body with a slightly arched top and “fiddle cuts”. The body is back routed, so no need for a pickguard.  The first edition of the Vandenberg model was came in 3 finishes: “gloss black”, “sunfire red” and “rock-it pink”. The bolt on neck was two piece laminated maple in a natural matte finish with an bony fingerboard . It was possible to adjust the neck tilt with an Allen key. The neck has a scale length of 24 3/4″ with a flattened Hardware is finished in black chrome. The tremolo system was a Kahler 2700 (licensed Floyd Rose ) slightly recessed into the body. Pickups were a humbucker and single coil, both mounted at a 2 degree tilt angle which eliminates the string spacing problem of Gibson spaced pickups with Fender spaced bridges. The controls were 2 volume and one 3 way pickup selector switch.

The Peavey Vandenberg Signature guitar is a “made in the USA” super strat type guitar released in 1988. It distinguishes itself from other superstrats by a very unique look. It has a slightly arched top and “fiddle cuts” in the body. The lower cutaway also has an extra scooped cutaway for reaching the highest fret. The scale of the bolt-on neck is 24.75 inch (just like a Les Paul). The headstock is reversed and has a 3 degree tilt and matches the color of the body. The bridge is a Kahler 2700 series licensed under Floyd Rose double locking tremolo. The pickups have an HS configuration with an Alnico bridge humbucker (14.67kOhm) and an Alnico neck single coil (6.47kOhm) with medium/high output both by Peavey. The pickups are both placed at a 2-4 degree angle (parallell with the body’s bottom) to eliminate the string spacing problem when Gibson pickups are combined with Fender spaced tremolos.
