A Gotta HaveOk, I didn't buy this guitar from Sweetwater but from an individual. I want to review this guitar for them in hopes that it will bring them some business. I do this because of what they have done for me in the past. Sweetwater Music is operated by Awesome people. This guitar by it's self is worth $500.00 IMO. Sorry to any of you purists out there but being in tune "all" of the time inside/outside after bends after breaks and body heat is not explainable in words. Intonation all the way up that is so clear it gives you goose bumps. Drop D in the middle of a song......Every guitar made is going to have this one day and if it doesn't, don't buy it. Peavey hit a Bo Jackson home run.

Awesome Guitarhow cool! Like having a $500 Variax...but better!! Can't wait for Antares to release all of the optional software, and being it is all MIDI I bet there will be owner made files and sounds also available!! good Luck getting one as they are hard to find now!

Amazing, a lot of fun!I didn't buy this from Sweetwater (sorry guys) but I do buy stuff from SW so I thought I'd chime in. This guitar is simply amazing. As you can imagine, the fact that it's $500 with this technology means there are a few compromises (tuning keys, meh), but all in all I love it. I mean, the tuning keys aren't really a problem for me because I only use it in autotune mode anyway. I love the perfect intonation best of all, it really spoils you to have it in tune all the way up the neck. I'm going to get the full upgrade from Antares as soon as it's available for sure! I would definitely tell you to play it with headphones on because if you can hear the actual guitar it seems to make chorusing sounds because you're hearing 2 different notes.
Having a lot of fun going through all the different tunings in the owner's manual!

Buy it!After looking at the Peavey AT-200 since I first saw it (a couple of weeks, I think), I finally pulled the trigger. Told Phil S. on Tuesday which one I wanted, and it showed on my doorstep on Friday. Played with it Friday evening and was considering sending it back Ė couldnít get the B and High E to tune properly. Put it back in the box and slept on the decision. Saturday morning, plugged it back in and tried it again Ė perfect. Figured out I canít tune it standing in front of the speaker cab. Duh. Played with it most of the day, and I can say that, although it is a bit heavy and the neck could be a tad thinner, this is one guitar I donít foresee EVER getting rid of. Still have a lot to learn about it (different tuning modes, etc.), but Iím about as happy with this guitar as I have ever been with any of my others (and Iíve been playing almost 50 years Ė sheesh! Iím getting old!). :D
