Peavey JF-1 EXP Hollowbody Electric

The Peavey JF-1 hollowbody electric guitar plays like a dream. Jazz and fusion players are constantly playing up and down the fretboard and need as much access as possible, especially in the upper registers. Peavey took this classic design one step further by ever so slightly angling the neck to allow more comfortable access to the upper register of the fretboard.

  • Sunburst
  • 24-3/4 inch scale
  • Set-neck guitar with hard rock maple neck and rosewood fretboard
  • Maple multi-laminate body
  • Figured maple cap Cream binding on body and neck
  • 22 frets
  • Custom Bow-tie inlay Die-cast machine heads with tulip buttons
  • Dual adjustable torsion rod
  • Tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece
  • Two humbucking pickups
  • Black/white/black pickguard
  • Two tone and two volume controls with three-way switch
  • Gold-plated hardware

Tone Monster

Like many I too wanted a semi-hollow body to play some jazz and blues with and to get the tone my telecaster could not quite get there with the warmth I wanted. I was not sure what I was getting so I relied on other people's reviews and some You Tube videos, well let just say i was not disappointed. The guitar is very beautiful (sunburst) and is made very well. The are no defects or blemishes, it's very solid feeling and the hardware is gold and look very nice. The playing is the real treasure, it has amazing sustain and lots of tonal range to go smooth jazz or hard rocking blues. I'm very pleased in the guitar and a big thanks to Sweetwater for the good deal and safe shipping and to the folks at Peavey for making such a nice affordable guitar.

Exceptional guitar, especially for the price

I have had this guitar about a month now. I was dreaming of something in the $2000 range but my budget was a little closer to earth. I searched around for this semi hollow body style and came upon this Peavey. I took a gamble knowing that Sweetwater has a reliable return policy. The guitar plays well, stays in tune and sounds great. I play it hard and soft, jazz and rock, pick and fingers. The action could be lower but that might just be a setup issue based on what I can see of the neck etc. My guitar repair/luthier friend has been very impressed with Peavey guitars and was encouraging when I indicated I had bought one.

4.5/5

This is my favorite guitar in my collection and I'll tell you why. The body may not be built with hand picked, higher grade tonewoods like the more expensive guitars on the market, but it's built solid and it's beautiful to look at and it feels good to play. Upgrading the tuners is a must do on this guitar though. They are inferior, so invest in keeping your guitar tuned if you buy one. Installing a new nut is a wise choice too. The humbuckers and electronics in this guitar give it a nice bluesy/jazz sound, but I eventually upgraded all of that too. Now I have a nice 335 style semi-hollowbody guitar that pretty much sounds and plays as good as the guitars that cost thousands more...seriously! When I do gigs with it people always ask me what it is. So I'll getting a Trans-Red one soon and do the same thing to it because with a little work, these guitars rock!
