Product Description

The Peavey Composer acoustic is a parlor style guitar. It has a scale length of 24.75" and is smaller in size than the popular dreadnought size guitar. The popularity of parlor guitars peaked between the late 19th and early 20th century. Many blues and folk musicians used smaller-bodied guitars, which were often more affordable than other models. The Peavey Composer parlor guitar features a spruce laminate top and offset sound hole. The small size produces a "mid-range" tone with good volume for its size. It has a satin finish, and a wide body cutaway scoop to the fifteenth fret that provides access to the upper frets. With its included, back-style gig bag and light weight, the Peavey Composer is a great getaway guitar that makes travel easy and fun for any guitarist.

That is a really negative title for a guitar that is actually a pretty good deal. For reasons left unsaid I ended up with the sunburst guitar when I really really wanted the natural finish guitar to hang on my wall if it wasn't any good for playing. What I got was a good little playing guitar that I hate to look at. The finish on my guitar doesn't contain the blond highlights shown in the above picture so it really looks cheap and the black flat finish is just asking for scratches. But it grows on me.

Where the guitar shines is the playing and sound. I haven't messed with the action and truss rod yet and it plays nicely out of the box. Very bright, trebbly sound with plenty of volume for such a small guitar out of the sound ports. The neck is nothing special but your hand slides up and down with ease and the high notes are easy to play. I have big clumsy hands but can play this narrow neck pretty well without deadening the neighboring strings. I think it sounds awesome when finger-picking but the strumming sounds a little compressed, still a great little performer for both.

Very comfortable to hold.

I like to play the blues and this guitar has nice high note punch but not quite a great sustain on the bends. After writing this I think I have convinced myself that I like it even more. It does beg to be picked up and played - but what guitar doesn't?.

Great size. If only I had ended up with the blond one.

How did I get a currently unavailable guitar? In China of course.

Surprisingly loud! The location of the holes in the guitar give a great tonal response directly to the player and audience. It has a very warm sound, and is great for any beginner to intermediate player.

One problem with it though, which is why I gave it 4/5. I don't know if it was only mine, or if it's a wide ranged thing, but my guitar neck started to warp a very very very very very tiny bit after only a years of use. It is not at all visible, but now my 1-3 frets on my 1st string will play only the 4th fret for the string has lowered itself from the warp. Same goes with the 2nd string, but it only affects the 1-2 frets that only play the 3rd fret. It started out as a minor buzz, and eventually turned into unplayable notes.

Though this is normally just an uncommon problem with most guitars, it is always safe to buy a truss rod wrench and have one with you. If you are not confident in yourself to adjust the truss rod yourself, a local guitar shop could easily do it and not damage the guitar.

Otherwise from this fact, a very amazing product.

Verified Purchase
It was well-packaged for shipment and sounded great right out of the box (with a little tuning). The size of the instrument and its action are just right for me; the upgraded saddle provided by the seller is a definite plus. Peavey provides a hex key for adjusting the guitar's truss rod but Peavey does not provide a printed word (neither in the box nor on its web site) about why or how this adjustment is done. However, I did obtain some "non-public" contact info if any technical assistance is ever needed.
