Peerless Guitars has launched a pair of 4-string versions of their Retromatic guitar with the Retromatic B1 and B2 basses. Sporting a vintage vibe, the basses feature a chambered, semi-hollow body design finished in natural, teal green, honey sunburst, ivory, black, gold or candy apple red colors.
The B1 is fitted with a single humbucker designed by Matt Gleeson of Monty’s London and positioned near the bridge, while the B2 adds another humbucker in the neck position. Each model has a 6-way Varitone switch as well as volume and tone controls.
The Peerless Retromatic B1 and B2 basses are available with street prices of $1,499 and $1,599, respectively. Left handed models are available by special order.
