Peavey SC-1 - Anybody have one or know anything about it?
« on: February 20, 2021, 02:18:32 pm »
I recently traded some items from a previous hobby for an Ibanez RG350DX.  I like its tone compared to my old RG170 but I don't care for the trem(floyd rose style).  There is a Peavey SC-1 near me for sale or trade and the seller says he is looking for something with a Floyd Rose.  My problem is that I can't find any info on how this Peavey compares.

I'd rather have some clue about his guiltar before making contact or making any offer.

If anybody is wondering about or considering a guitar with a Floyd: I don't hate it and it stays in tune within about 5% even after leaning into the bar.  But I find very little to zero use for it in the way I play.  My biggest problem is trying to bend a single string, I have to push it a bit farther to get to my target because the bridge is not solid.  My bends are much more consistent on my hard-tail Les Paul style kit guitar.

It’s low end of the range, about comparable with your old RG, there is an option that converts your RG to fixed bridge

Is the Peavey a US made model?
If so, then find out more and give it some real consideration.
They are unsung and well regarded.

No, it’s a cheap base model.

OK, I will probably skip the Peavey, its from Indonesia.  I may offer mine for sale to see just how much he wants something with a FL trem.  If I take on another guitar, it has to be an upgrade to what I already have.

Otherwise the Tremol-no may be a good option.  I had heard about those but haven't had a close look.  Being able to make it dive-only may solve the issue I have with it.
