Peterson Guitars Announces New Custom Line of Guitars

Based out of Yorkville, IL, Peterson Guitars have announced their new line of custom-made guitars.

Yorkville, IL (August 19, 2013) -- Peterson Signature Guitars set out to build a professional player’s instrument by bringing together a long list of high-end features and amazing tone-generating craftsmanship. Each body and neck is hand carved and matched using techniques that you would only find on the world’s most expensive stringed instruments. The original four prototypes were featured at Summer NAMM 2012 and the refined versions received fantastic response from pro players at Summer NAMM 2013. Instead of buying a production instrument that requires extensive modification to meet a professional guitarist’s personal demands, PSG builds guitars on an order by order basis specifically for each customer.

  • 24 3/4" Scale - 24 Frets - Stainless Steel
  • 10" - 13" Compound Radius Fretboard
  • Full 2" Thick Honduran Mahogany & Figured Maple Chambered Body
  • Hand Rubbed Satin or Gloss Finish
  • Two Piece Bookmatched Maple Neck - Bound Indian Rosewood Fretboard
  • Schaller Hardware - Seymour Duncan Pickups* - SKB Deluxe Hardshell Case *(Frets and Pick-Ups may be customized per order)

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
