First of all I will say that I tend to agree with the previous opinion, there all is said and almost ..
But why always compare Gibson Peerless I realized that this is another world, an alternative;? Anyway with this type of model it is true that the large American firm of trouble to do ..
I brought a weekend in Belgium can be in France I would not have found in any case I've ever seen in the shop of Paris .. And I do not buy without try .. In any case when I tested it on a basic fender connected by the seller, I understood immediately and my face is illuminated .. This is a skyscraper in the Gold ... more factory adjustment of the action was very good, the guy had just received two so I decided very quickly see you ..
For me it is a guitar that suits me just, and suits my style, rock and rockabilly, I do not think the original pickups is so bad but hey there will always be better ...
For me the important thing is the construction of the machine, and then I'll tell you that in fact it is just "marvelous" ...
This guitar is a great tool for use professionnel.Elle was all my joy at the studio.
With one play everything is made for all, those who want to play jazz, pieces of beattles, of Lou Reed, ronny jordan, barry white, fusion ... but its not really a dirty filthy, it remains clear also .. she has too much chest to play acdc but it happens ..
Before I had a Epiphone Casino, 1982 Japan, and a gibson les paul studio US.Je think it's a mix of both .. The neck of a les paul, and the fully hollow body Epiphone. .
I got a great deal with a great recent model of 2011, I am filled.
Made in South Korea by a company not producing nearly as archtop models of very good quality.
The renaissance is a highly successful replica of a Gibson es 330 (completely hollow body).
I recently custom model in solid .. I ordered in England because there were very few interesting offers in France .. the faux brown leather holster is not bad all .. Epiphone humbucker type pickups (I dreaded still wondering if the demonstrations of Renaissance views on the net were made once the pickups replaced with high-end ...)
for more technical details on this guitar jazz there is enough information on the internet ..
Channel type epiphone sheraton, not too thick whatever the profile slim tapper "Gibson looks better on me ... and the varnish does not jinx .. all matches go well, the string action on the handle is set very low frieze and without recent (less than 1.2mm at 12th fret) ..
Access to the treble is a bit more laborious compared to a Gibson ES sleeve. Peerless in the neck is a little deeper in the body of the guitar ..
The tuners seem a little light hold tuning very well and after several insistent bend well, amazing .. I would not change it already is ..
Once connected, you understand why it resonated sound already so good, and which sustain the pickups .. doing very well and restore the soft, woody jazz sound I'm looking on the net .. demonstrations are conducted without " faking. ".. Violin making of this guitar is excellent .. moreover it is lighter than a stratocaster ..
The micro acute invite you to blues and rock, without any problems humbuckers are very good ..
neck pickup for jazz is a treat .. she has this patch if Jazzy .. especially gentle roundness, and long held notes
Versatility guaranteed ...
I play on an amp lamp studiotone Koch, a little reverb, a disto Okko ..
I particularly like the neck pickup ..
It is very playable acoustic .. if you want to make his lines "the fire" without having to connect it to the amp ..
I previously owned a 2004 ES 335 .. a epiphone sheraton, 1989 (made in workshops Peerless, because the plant produce different models for major brands ..)
But I prefer the custom Peerless renaissance: for the price is perfect and the fact that there is no central beam in the guitar is a definite plus ..
What I like less, so let's see .... um ...... ....... design his head a little strange, broad bottom tightened up ... well, forget it quickly this detail when we see this beautiful flamed maple, and the perfect abalone inlays, a little busy .. but good ...
value for money, after a very long compared with other models ... unbeatable ... unless you blow the budget ..
I loved that the legendary Gibson ES 335, and well .... believe me .. ca .. calm
Korean workshops, all workshops as Japan, produce quality guitars and Peerless, still poorly known in France seems to have seceded with his new line of guitars ..
The renaissance has really nothing to be ashamed of these great American sisters that you buy also the myth and image ..
One board, contact you, try one if you're lucky enough to find one at your dealer ..
