NEW PEERLESS IMPERIAL CUSTOM with HUMBUCKER PICKUP Carved spruce Top & Carved Maple back- 24.6" scale. This is a Custom Imperial with warm jazz full tone and very feedback resistant modeled after the Gibson L5 but with shorter 24.6" scale desired by many jazz players.
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 routed in humbucker. It gives that WARM FAT punchy archtop JAZZ 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 clarity and sustain and focused tone- 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. Mother of pearl fretboard inlays and bone nut and hand rubbed ebony pickguard tailpiece and fingerboard. Maple neck, 22 frets 1.69 " at bone nut and 2.25" at last fret .
