This is an incredibly unique item — it’s a production sample from Riffmaster and Peavey’s collaboration to create real guitars to play the Guitar Hero video game!

The guitar’s body features an original-lineup KISS photo overlayed with a black KISS logo. The back of the guitar’s neck has a nameplate featuring licensing and manufacturer details.

(Note that we have not seen similar nameplates on final production models — they have a solid silver, non-printed backplate.)


This is a genuine, officially-licensed full-size Peavey guitar that has been factory-modified for wireless play with guitar-based music video games on the Playstation 2 computer entertainment system. It was manufactured under a Riffmaster and Peavey collaboration to create real guitars to play the Guitar Hero video game. Why use a plastic toy when you can play with the correct size, weight, and feel of a genuine guitar?

The Peavey RiffMaster Guitar Controller features the sleek finish, dimensions and feel of a real Peavey guitar, providing a truly authentic music video game experience. Crafted from natural maple, the neck features five colored fret buttons located among real frets and position markers on a genuine rosewood fretboard. The strum bar is strategically placed above the pickup and allows players to transfer smoothly from note to chord without missing a beat, while the whammy bar features a smooth, sturdy spring. This guitar has no strings, but the headstock retains its real tuning pegs for visual appeal.

Using the same patented ArtGuitar printing system that applies custom images and graphics under the finish of real guitars, the Peavey RiffMaster Guitar Controller brought KISS’ exclusive artist designs to these guitar controllers. The ArtGuitar image process lasts as long as the guitar, because it is applied using a quality finish, followed by a professional clear coat and buffing by luthiers in the Peavey Custom Shop.


Notes about this item: This is a brand-new production sample provided to the band by the manufacturer. When removing it from the box for the first time to photograph, we noticed that there are two minor cracks in the finish of the guitar – one behind the neck which appears to only be a finish crack; and one underneath the guitar’s cavity cover which is a minor crack at the screw hole which is not visible when the cavity cover is on. Please refer to photos for details.

Due to these small cracks, this item is non-returnable, and we are discounting this highly-collectible production sample to match the original 2007 retail price of this guitar.

This guitar uses four AA batteries for wireless game play. We have removed the four Peavey AA batteries it originally shipped with to preserve the electronics inside. Guitar will ship with original batteries.

This production sample did not include a guitar strap, though full production models came with a nylon strap. We are including a genuine leather KISS licensed guitar strap so that you can enjoy game play right away.

Includes: Guitar, PS2 wireless controller plug, KISS “Rock Godz” genuine leather guitar strap.
