HISTORY -Peerless guitars was established in 1970. Since then they have built quality archtop and acoustic guitars for world-renowned top brands such as Gretsch of Fender, Epiphone of Gibson, Alvarez of St.Louis Music and many others with our high standards of quality.
However, now they are focusing solely on quality and building only less guitars. These changes have been done to build guitars that are special. As the result of the effort, now we are presenting a series of guitars with our own brand name, PEERLESS. They offer quality and performance and value that is absolutely unbeleivable
