“The Monarch is the flagship and made of all solid woods and undoubtedly the best value in the jazz world delivering a great guitar with great chordal note separations, clarity, sustain and feedback resistant. This is accomplished by using all solid woods – spruce top and maple back and sides and installing a sound-post from the factory that dampens the top just enough to make this guitar feedback resistant. The fretboard is a dream starting at 1.69 at the nut and increasing gradually to 2 1/16 at the 12th fret.”
The Peerless MONARCH features a 17″ all solid arched spruce top and a solid maple arched back and rosewood fretboard, bridge, pickguard, and tailpiece. This is the working man’s archtop with a great solid wood sound at a very affordable price. It has one floating mini humbucker pickup and one small soundpost positioned under the bridge to eliminate most feedback issues but still deliver the clarity and tone of the best archtops. This model will also be available with a routed set humbucker, Mother of pearl fretboard inlays and bone nut.
