Peerless Guitars Unveils Martin Taylor Maestro &
Virtuoso Signature Models -
With a pedigree in manufacturing archtop, acoustic, and
hollowbody guitars spanning over 40 years, Peerless Guitars is very
proud to announce at NAMM 2012 the release of two Dr. Martin Taylor
MBE signature models: The Maestro and The Virtuoso.
The Maestro is the higher spec model with blonde carved solid
spruce top, antique sunburst carved solid maple back and solid
maple sides. The guitar is complimented in perfect contrast with
ebony fretboard, bridge, tailpiece and pickguard and sports a black
Kent Armstrong floating mini-humbucker. An abalone orchid is inlaid
on the 12th fret and the volume control is located under the
pickguard for discreet adjustment.
With a 381mm wide, 70mm deep body and 59mm neck width makes this
a stunning compact guitar and a perfect addition to the Peerless
range of Jazz models.
The Virtuoso also comes with a 381mm wide, 70mm deep body and
59mm neck but is fabricated in laminated antique sunburst spruce
top and laminated flame maple back and sides. The fretboard,
bridge, tailpiece and pickguard come in Indian Rosewood and a gold
effect floating mini-humbucker which complements the guitar
beautifully. Once again, the volume control is discreetly located
under the pickguard for an overall understated but classy
