Peavey Electronics announces its all-new line of officially licensed musical instruments celebrating the iconic DC Comics Super Heroes.

Meridian, MS (February 26, 2013) -- Peavey Electronics, one of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of musical instruments and professional sound equipment, proudly announces its all-new line of officially licensed musical instruments celebrating the iconic DC Comics Super Heroes.

Available exclusively from Peavey – under license with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment – these new musical instruments will capture DC Comics Super Heroes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and many more, in highly detailed artwork on guitars, percussion instruments and accessories. The instruments will be specially designed for DC Comics enthusiasts, serious collectors, and musicians of every skill level from beginner to pro.

“We are thrilled about this unique partnership with Peavey Electronics that unites the worlds of music and the DC Comics Super Heroes. Fans of all ages and skill levels will now be able to show off their musical super powers with this unique line of instruments and accessories,” said Karen McTier, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

“We are excited about bringing together these two iconic brands and creating something special,” said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics. “Musicians, music fans and comic aficionados alike will be delighted and inspired by these new musical instruments featuring their favorite DC Comics Super Heroes.”

The new product line will debut in summer 2013 with a half-size Peavey acoustic guitar featuring the DC Comics Super Heroes, followed by a three-quarter size Peavey electric guitar and the full-size Peavey Rockmaster electric guitar. Peavey will also release guitar picks and straps featuring DC Comics Super Heroes and villains such as Aquaman and The Joker, as well as Watchmen and other fan favorites.

Founded in 1965, Peavey Electronics has been a leading manufacturer and supplier of musical instruments since the company revolutionized guitar making by introducing computer-aided manufacturing techniques in the 1970s to vastly improve quality and consistency. Today, the methods Peavey pioneered are the industry standard worldwide.

Peavey and the DC Comics-inspired musical instruments and accessories will be available in summer 2013 at specialty and major national retailers.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection.
