The Imperial 17 (along with the Cremona) are PEERLESS' best jazz guitars.

all solid woods with floating mini humbucker pickup-"The Best performance guitars on the Planet", distributed exclusively in the USA and Canada by Guitars 'n Jazz. Peerless guitars deliver amplified tone and performance equivalent to guitars costing 2 to 3 times more! Other guitars may look the same, but once you play a Peerless you will immediately hear the difference and be amazed at the affordability of these fine guitars!
The IMPERIAL is the top 17-inch by 3-inch Acoustic-Electric Peerless Archtop and features carved spruce top and carved maple back and ebony fretboard, bridge, pickguard, and tailpiece. It has one custom floating mini humbucker that produces over 90% the amplification of a full routed in humbucker. It gives that clear crisp punchy archtop tone and bite at any volume, whether played through a tube or solid state amplifier. Mother of pearl fretboard inlays and bone nut.
Acoustically the Peerless also has great clarity and sustain- and is full and warm and has more complexity of tone. The closest thing to the tone of the Peerless Imperial -amplified and acoustically - is the sound of a really good Heritage Golden Eagle, which costs over twice as much.
