United Kingdom (December 17, 2012) -- Peerless Guitar has announced a new line of small-bodied, thinline guitars - the Retromatic series. Here are the details from the company:

The guitars come with a variety of options, either a single humbucker, or a combination of humbucker and P-90 pickups, with or without the 6-way varitone. The bridge humbucker is wound vintage but hotter at 9.4k to give you that "crunch" when required and the neck P-90 Alnico V wound at 8.0k provides the clarity but with plenty of good, strong rock. The archtop contoured body consists of a mahogany sustain block and single "F" hole to retain that lively vibe while allowing you to perform with ease at high volume. The 628mm scaled neck consists of 22 polished frets.

Several retro finishes are available including silver, teal green, honey sunburst, ivory, black, gold, and candy apple red, finished in a combination of either black or aged white/black triple binding with nickel hardware. Left-handed models are available by order.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
