Peavey Power Slide

First of all before I talk about the instrument the customer service, prices and terms at Sweetwater can't be beat. Special thanks to Kurt Cripe (my personal sales engineer) for his assistance and the follow up calls to ensure that I am satisfied with my purchase. The Peavey Power Slide has proven to be a quality instrument and a bargain at the price. If you are interested in learning to play lap steel you can't go wrong with this purchase. I am still learning but the learning curve is much faster with this instrument. The sound, ease of use and the flawless appearance make this the one..

Peavey Powerslide Lap Steel

For the price these things are great. One thing I was really impressed with is the sustain. It has a good amount of sustain for sure and I am able to hold notes for longer than 3 seconds depending on my amp settings. I also love the 3 way strap so I can play standing up. That is the reason I bought it. My only small complaint is that where the tone knob would be is a knob switching the pickup from a single coil to a humbucker. The single coil sounds great. The humbucker is very very mid rangee, almost to the point of changing the settings on your amp. It definitely is louder on the humbucker setting but the mid range is a bit much for me. That is why I only gave it a 4 start rating. But don't let that keep you from trying this guitar out because I am still very pleased with my purchase and plan to play this for a long time to come.

Peavey PowerSlide

Excellent value for the price! Peavey got it right with this instrument. The powerslide can be played in the traditional lap slide style or standing up. Great tone control, basically humbucker to single coil. I love the old country C6 style tuning. Recommended for anyone into lap slide guitar! Let me add that Sweetwater has excellent customer service and is a pleasure to deal with.

Good value for the money

I bought the Powerslide 'cause I wanted to be able to stand while performing lapsteel stuff. I had read previous reviews and knew what to expect. So I was not surprised to find a good basic lapsteel that needed some work to make it performance ready. As with previous reviewers, the one I got needed to bridge moved about 1/4 inch away from the nut to intonate properly at the 12th fret. Also, several of the nut and bridge slots needed to be filed to angle away from the strings' playing areas to eliminate string buzzes and rattles. These were simple fixes and, once done, make the Powerslide a good performer. I'm still working on a way to keep the Powerslide further away from my body while standing so that I can reach the high positions with reasonably good technique, but I think I've got that one solved too. The Powerslide sounds fantastic and has a good range of great tones from the pup when coupled with the "humbucker to single-coil" tone knob. So, for the little $ I spent, I'm happy with the purchase. Having said that, I would have rated it higher if those problems I solved (above) would have been solved in the manufacturing and setup processes before the Powerslide was shipped to me.
