The CREMONA 17 (along with the Imperial) are PEERLESS' best jazz guitars.
This Cremona has a Florentine Cutaway. It is 17" at the lower bout and 3" at the rims. This archtop has all the tone and performance of others costing almost twice as much and offers a carved flamed maple top, for much punchier tone and life than the laminated models. It features a laminated maple back and sides - to reduce feedback, , ebony fretboard, pickguard, and hand rubbed ebony tailpiece, and bridge. A carved flame maple top for punch, and a laminated flame maple back & sides to reduce feedback gives the performer the best of both worlds. It has the acoustic volume of a carved spruce top archtop and the amplified tone that rivals a Gibson Wes L5. It has a special Peerless routed in set humbucker to give that warm smooth velvety tone and the sustain of a Wes L5. Mother of pearl fretboard inlays and bone nut. The cutaway meets the body at the 20th fret giving full access to the entire fingerboard.
