Peerless Presents the RETROMATIC B1 and B2 Bass Guitars

Peerless Presents the RETROMATIC B1 and B2 Bass GuitarsPeerless Presents the RETROMATIC B1 and B2 Bass Guitars…  As a fitting progression to the incredible success made by the Peerless RETROMATIC on entering the market, Peerless now presents the RETROMATIC B1 and B2 Bass guitars.


These spectacular new design’s consist of the same body dimensions as the ‘P’ Series guitars. The B1 & B2 full scale neck feels perfectly balanced on the 375mm x 44mm chambered centre block body. The 864mm scale neck is 43mm wide at the bone nut, 57mm at the end fret and consists of 20 frets. A maple neck and rosewood fret board are complemented with angled Mother of Pearl inlay. The laminated maple archtop contoured body style comes in a variety of finishes, including  natural, teal green, honey sunburst, ivory, black, gold, and candy apple red. These choices are then crowned with a combination of black and aged white/ black binding and nickel hardware

Once again, from Monty’s, the  pickups  are designed by Matt Gleeson. Matt  has ‘raised the bar’ and created some extraordinary sounding tones for this very special bass guitar.  The B1 model consists of a single bridge Humbucker wound at 8.7k and the B2 comes with an additional neck Humbucker wound at 7.85k. ‘Thunder Birds Are Us’ we hear you shout when you select this beauty of a neck humbucker, or ‘For Those About To Rock’ when you switch to the growling bridge humbucker. But it doesn’t stop there! As with the ‘P’ Series guitars, we have included a wonderful 6 way varitone switch. This innovation opens up endless options, from creamy vintage blues, to smooth jazz and  funk, to the raunchiest sounding rock,  all adding a fresh luster to the sound, making it  bright and dynamic, as a result of the ‘openess’ of this single ‘F’ hole, chambered hollowbody.

The B1 & B2 Bass Guitars,  topped with the  stylish and distinctive RETROMATIC headstock, also share the RETROMATIC truss-rod cover, and pick guard design, making the same bold, confident, statement from Peerless,  shared by the ‘P’ series guitars.

With the professional craftsmanship and quality expected from the legendary Peerless plant, the new RETROMATIC B1 & B2 Bass Guitar is a, ‘must have’ for any bass player who wishes to add diversity to their repertoire of inspired sounds!

Left handed models are available by special order.
