FT: norway: Peavey Vandenberg Quilt for higher end 7-string

With grievance there is a chance that i might trade this jewel for a sevenstring.
it's simply a stunning piece, but my bandsituation demands some extra oomph.

The Peavey Vandenberg Quilt top arrived on the market in 1989. It was based on the P.V. Custom model, but has some extra features which makes it the most versatile and exclusive of the Peavey Vandenberg models. First of all the selection of woods are different. The body is made of medium weight mahogany with a quilted, book matched maple top (this makes the guitar a bit thicker than the P.V. Custom). The neck is also made of mahogany, and the fret board is rosewood with cream binding. The neck joint is not as smooth as on the P.V. Custom, more like on an ESP Horizon Custom. The headstock is not as sharp edged as on the other models. The frets are Gibson Les Paul type...does it ring any bells? Maybe Adrian wanted to design an anatomically correct Les Paul with a locking tremolo? This guitar has also got dual humbuckers with cream colored frames like a Gibson, but the wiring is quite different and opens for some really convenient pickup combinations. A golden 2 way mini switch is added below the other controls.
With the mini switch in the lower position the 3 way toggle acts like this:
down: bridge pickup serial (humbucker)
middle: both pickups in parallel
up: neck pickup serial (humbucker)
These pickup combinations together with the warm tone and sustain in this guitar offers the classic Gibson sound.

With the mini switch in the upper position the 3 way toggle acts like this:
down: bridge pickup split (single coil)
middle: both pickups split and in parallel (the inner coils of each pickup out-of-phase with each other)
up: neck pickup split (single coil)
These pickup combinations sound almost like a strat, and offers some killer clean sounds especially in a studio situation.
The P.V. Quilt top has gold hardware and it was available in 3 different finishes: Transparent honey sunburst, transparent purple and transparent pink. The side edge of the maple top is not colored; only clear finish like on a Paul Reed Smith.
Adrian first appeared with 2 prototypes of the P.V. Quilt top on the"Liquor & Poker tour" (1989-91). One of them had a tiger stripe maple top and transparent pink finish. This guitar also had a Peavey/Kahler bridge system, very similar to an original Floyd. The other was a transparent honey sunburst P.V.Quilt top.
The Peavey Vandenberg Quilt top was discontinued in 1992. It is quite difficult to track one down.
