For Sale is a Peerless Renaissance Standard. Peerless has been in business since 1970 making guitars for themselves as well as other manufacturers including Epiphone.
The Renaissance is a cross between a Gibson ES335 and ES330 in that it has Humbucker Pickups BUT like an ES330 is actually a Thinline Hollowbody.(does NOT feedback easily)
As you can see from the pics it's a beautiful guitar but the pics don't do it justice. It has low action, good intonation, and has had a few upgrades which include the Jack, CTS Pots, Sprague Orange Drop Tone Caps, and the plug in connectors were eliminated so everything is hard wired.
16" Thinline Hollowbody guitar
Maple Neck / Rosewood Fingerboard
1.69" Bone Nut
2 1/18" at 12th Fret
It comes with the heavy duty Original Hard Shell Case with a very comfortable handle.
This is NOT a cheap imitation of a Gibson but a Pro Instrument in it's own right. Check out Guitars N Jazz (Summit, NJ) website and you'll see Renaissance Custom guitars are in Very Good Company with the other Jazz/Blues guitars they sell.
These guitars are not easy to find with only a few US Dealers. I purchased this a few years ago a while I was waiting for a Custom guitar to be built. It has served me well. For $650 FIRM you'd be hard pressed to find a better value in a hollow body thin line. The fit and finish on this guitar is excellent as is the playability.
Come check it out. . .you will not be disappointed.
