Peavey Unveils Delta Woods Series Acoustic Guitars

Peavey Unveils Delta Woods Series Acoustic Guitars

Peavey Electronics returns to the roots of an American tradition with the introduction of the new Delta Woods acoustic guitars. The DW series is designed to be the best-sounding, easiest-playing, full-size acoustic guitars Peavey has ever built.


The three new models — two acoustic, one acoustic-electric — are made using only high-end materials and a minimalistic satin finish, resulting in excellent tone and volume. Whether players are casually strumming a traditional 12-bar blues riff or exercising modern fingerpicking techniques, Peavey's Delta Woods acoustic guitars deliver rich tonal resonance and premium playability.

The three new Delta Woods guitars, the DW-1, DW-2, and DW-2 CE, all offer a gorgeous spruce top with mahogany back and sides for premium tone. The most notable material difference among these models is that the DW-2 and DW-2 CE both offer a solid spruce top, which offers incomparable resonance and sustain. On each DW series model, hand-carved bracing provides even tone distribution throughout each guitar's range. Each model also has a bound fingerboard and body along with a fanciful rosette, rosewood fretboard, and pearloid inlays for a premium look and feel. Other high-end appointments for the DW series include sealed tuning machines for precise and accurate tuning, pre-installed strap buttons, a compensated saddle for ideal intonation, and a wood truss rod cover for the dual-action truss rod, designed to ensure a lifetime of playability.

The DW-2 CE (cutaway and electronic) is a series standout, offering both a cutaway for easy access to upper-register strings as well as custom electronics. The 3-band EQ and Presence control provide tone-shaping and easy connection to any amplifier or audio system, while the on-board chromatic tuner helps to ensure the guitar's stage-readiness.

The three models in the Delta Woods series are available in a satin-finish. The luxury finish offers a rustic appearance, with beautiful, natural wood grain on the back and sides, and headstock. The DW-1 comes with a carry bag and the DW-2's are available with or without a case.

DW-1 with bag retails for $169.99 USD

DW-2 without case retails for $199.99 USD

DW-2CE without case retails for $249.99 USD

The accomplished guitarist and teacher’s new record, like her lifestyle, is taut and exciting—no more, and certainly no less, than is needed.

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard started out as a “joke” band. As guitarist/songwriter Joey Walker says with a grin, “Now the joke’s on us.”

With their 26th release, Flight b741, the prog-rockers make it hard but highly rewarding for fans to keep up. Behind that drive lies a wealth of joy, camaraderie, and unwavering commitment to their art.

There’s a dangerous, pernicious myth, seemingly spread in perpetuity among fledgling artists and music fans alike, that when you’re a musician, inspiration—and therefore productivity—comes naturally. Making art is the opposite of work, and, conversely, we know what happens to Jack when there’s all work and no play. But what happens when the dimensions of work and play fuse together like time and space? What happens to Jack then? Well, behind such an instance of metaphysical reaction, undoubtedly, would be King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
