The Retromatic’s distinctive headstock, truss-rod cover, and pick guard design makes a bold statement from Peerless.

The 628mm scaled neck is maple, with rosewood fret board, and angled Mother of Pearl inlay, consisting of 22 polished frets. Neck width at nut is 43mm, and 57mm at end fret, with black binding to match the headstock, giving a sophisticated appearance and a comfortable playing profile. The Retromatic comes with a variety of options – either a single humbucker or a combination of humbucker and P90 pickups, with or without the 6-way varitone.
