I compared the Peavey Raptor Plus EXP with a Squier Stratocaster at my local music store. The Squier looked nicer and had a better finish, but in my opinion, Peavey's electronics are far better. This guitar sounds pretty nice and is quite versatile. From a good clean sound, to blues, to jazz rock, to heavy-metal, this guitar can do it all. The Squier had too much noise in the pickups. The Peavey had way less noise and was better-sounding overall. Couple this to a Vox DA5 amp and you have a sweet little electric guitar setup for less than $300.

I just have to review this guitar to share some appreciation for the Peavey Raptor Plus EXP - a "budget" or "beginner" guitar in price that can performs and SOUNDS like a much more expensive guitar. Some background on me - I'm mostly a hobbyist and home player (intermittently since 1996), but I've owned and played more expensive guitars such as Gibson Les Pauls and Fender Stratocaster. But I don't like to sink huge amounts of money into a single instrument, so I like to hunt around for cheap (or used) instruments that can be made into "tone monsters" with just a few slight modifications. I've never owned a Peavey guitar, but did remember being impressed by the value of some of their small amplifiers in 1990's, which blew away similarly priced (and more famously named) competitors. I found a good price on a used Raptor, and needless to say, I was blown away:

PROS:
When I found the Raptor on sale, I did a few quick forum searches about it. A few people who actually played it seemed to rave about it, while the remainder were generally dismissive about it based on the price and the brand name. I cannot emphasize enough that "cheap" or "foreign made" does NOT mean "bad" with guitars. Especially not recently, with all of the Asian and Mexican made options out there.

The neck was the first thing that stood out to me. It is extremely thin but immensely fast and playable. The action can be set up very low with minimal fret buzzing. It will almost certainly require adjustments out of the box, but that's something that should be done on most new guitars anyway.

The tuners are a clear advantage on the Raptor versus something like a Squier Bullet. Despite the cheap plastic nut, this guitar simply would not go out of tune, even with heavy bends and strumming.

For this amount of money there is no better guitar. The raptor exp sounds and feels much better than any fender squier series guitar. It may require some simple setup tweaks (you can find pretty simple guides to guitar setup anywhere online) but it does sound good. It is very light compared to a fender, it has a pretty thin neck, and the pickups produce sound that has a lot of color to it. I used mine as a cheap guitar to do some cosmetic customization but I was surprised to find out that it is my favorite guitar to play with. Just make sure you use good strings to unlock it's true potential.

I purchased a Squier Stratocaster from the guitar store I take lessons from. I bought the Peavey to do a wiring mod I found online and basically fell in love with this guitar. It is shorter, lighter, and the 'belly' cutout on the back is deeper. It is so much easier to play than the Squier Strat. As others have said it took some tweeking to get the intonation and string height just right but lots of good websites to tell you how to do that. Love the bridge humbucker pickup for hard rock. The neck pickup plays Jimi's stuff pretty well. Like I said it is way better than the Squier.
