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

  • 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)

The jazz-guitar master and pop superstar opens up the archive to release 1989’s Dreams Do Come True: When George Benson Meets Robert Farnon, and he promises more fresh collab tracks are on the way.

“Like everything in life, there’s always more to be discovered,”George Benson writes in the liner notes to his new archival release, Dreams Do Come True: When George Benson Meets Robert Farnon. He’s talking about meeting Farnon—the arranger, conductor, and composer with credits alongside Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Vera Lynn, among many others, plus a host of soundtracks—after Quincy Jones told the guitarist he was “the greatest arranger in all the world.”
