Product Description

The Peavey PowerSlide standup lap steel-style electric guitar is designed with unique contours that make it easy to play either vertically or horizontally, seated or standing.

Whether you're a long-time steel player - or just thinking about adding steel guitar to your arsenal, you should check out the Peavey PowerSlide!

First, a disclaimer. I'm Suzanne's husband. I own a black one but obviously this review applies to the red and white versions of the Power Slide as well.

I haven't found a lot written about the Peavey Power Slide by users, though a fair amount can be gleaned from the videos. So, I'd like to contribute my experiences for those of you who are interested in this unique instrument. I've had mine for about a year. I play classic rock, country, blues, folk and pop (just about everything) on it so my needs may be a bit more diverse than most. While a lap steel wouldn't seem to be a natural instrument for all songs in all these styles, I've found ways to incorporate it into most of them. The Power Slide adds an emotional dimension to any kind of music that nothing else quite matches because of the way you play this kind of guitar, but partially because the musician is free to move around.

Here is my setup, which is very simple because I'm on a limited budget. Tuning: Open D (low to high) - D, A, D, F#, A, D. Strings: D'Addario XL Nickel Wound 60, 48, 36, 26, 17, 15. Bar: Shubb-Pearse SP2 (I'm still playing with the chromed brass model and haven't tried the stainless version yet). Capo: Golden Gate Squareneck Dobro Capo. Amplifier: Fender Frontman 25R with Fender footswitch. Pretty hard to beat this setup for about four hundred all together.

I like the Open D tuning for several reasons. The tonic D note is on both the high and low strings and I can make the tuning minor by lowering just the 3rd (F#) string. When playing a blues in key of E the D note is easy to play, just play an open 1st, 3rd and 6th string.

This is a kinda cool instrument. I play guitar and lap steel, and this thing, for it's low price, is worth checking out. It has a nice long (for a lap steel) scale (24-1/2"), wide string spacing, and a humbucking pickup. It's got two knobs - a volume control, and instead of a tone control, the second knob controls the pickup circuitry like a coil tap - it goes from a single coil and gradually over to a humbucker. This gives you a nice range of tones - you can go full single-coil for a nice clean steel-guitar-like tone, or turned full-on the other way, to George Thorogood-style dirty slide guitar sounds.

The instrument comes with a weird three-point strap which, in theory, allows you to stand and play it either vertically, guitar-style, or horizontally, lap-steel style, while standing. In reality, both positions are extremely awkward and you will either not be able to play properly, or you will look an idiot, or both - play poorly AND look like an idiot. The reasons are: played vertically, like slide guitar, the thick Dobro-style neck forces you to lean your head forward and look down at the fretboard to see where you are playing. Unless you think you look cool hunched over staring at a fretboard, or the top of your head is extremely interesting to an audience, this really is not a good way to play. Played horizontally, the instrument snugs up tight against your torso (unlike playing lap-style, where the instrument is out near your knees), and this seriously inhibits your bar technique (if you already play lap steel, take your instrument and pull it snug up against your torso, and you'll see what I mean).

can't imagine you could spend this little money anywhere else and get anything comparable. The Peavey Power Slide is a niche instrument, of course, but it fills that niche wonderfully. I got this guitar about a week ago. Getting the Y-strap set up was very quick and easy, and once that's done the guitar sits perfectly on your hip/belly and feels perfectly stable and comfortable.

It's got a really good tone. The split pickup "tone control" is kind of brilliant in my book. The single coil tone is at least as good as the tone of my Fender lap steel, and kicking in the 2nd coil kills all the noise which is the worst problem with single coil. The finish is fine. I'm not a big fan of 50s retro, but it's fine as far as it goes. Honestly, I think this is a great instrument at any price, and for the actual price, it's a killer. Talking about the problems other reviewers have mentioned:

1. My "fretboard" was perfectly aligned. I don't doubt that some have this problem, but I figured Peavey would fix it under warranty if necessary, and for $200 I'll take that chance.

2. The "cheap" bar: I wouldn't necessarily call it cheap. It's definitely different than a high-density bar, but I think that is deliberate. It's shaped like a standard lap steel bar, but it's actually closer to a pipe bar, a flat sheet of metal bent into standard bar shape. It's a lot lighter than a standard bar, so it's easier to maneuver, and the lighter mass gives it a "punchier" tone. All in all, I think it's a useful piece, not a cheap, useless fill-in.

3. Too early for me to tell if the volume knob is in a bad place; seems OK to me.

4. Tuning keys are kinda cheap feeling
