Awesome!!! If you’re a guitarist and a fan of zombies, you’ll want to check out these new Peavey guitars sporting artwork inspired by ‘The Walking Dead.’
AMC’s zombie drama ‘The Walking Dead’ has become insanely successful since its debut on Halloween 2010. Having reached enormous popularity and acclaim, ‘The Walking Dead’ has won a Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series (Drama) and drew in 16.1 million viewers for the premiere of Season 4, setting a record for the most-watch drama series telecast in basic cable history.
Peavey have unleashed a total of five ‘Walking Dead’ guitars: four ‘Rockmaster’ editions and one ‘Predator’ version. Each axe boasts detailed artwork reminiscent of the original ‘Walking Dead’ graphic novels. Peavey also want to sling their guitars onto your shoulder with special edition straps. The straps include some sweet artwork too, as do Peavey’s ‘Walking Dead’ pick packs.
“We are very pleased to be working with Skybound, the creators of ‘The Walking Dead,'” comments founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics, Hartley Peavey. “The immense popularity of ‘The Walking Dead’ comic and cable TV show will allow us to get our products in the hands of an entirely new market and will expand our range of designs.”
Shawn Kirkham, Director of Business Development at Skybound Entertainment, adds, “The merging of ‘The Walking Dead”s iconic art and the equally iconic Peavey brand is a no-brainer. I’m excited to see fans and musicians strapping on guitars featuring gruesome ‘Walking Dead’ artwork from Charlie Adlard. These guitars, straps and picks are going to look brutal!”
