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.

Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale.
