Anybody ever tried one of these?

Ran across this today. I have a question into the seller, asking about serial number, date of birth, etc. Other than the pickguard, this looks pretty close to a Zephyr Blues Deluxe. I have a Peerless made Epi Casino and have played other Peerless branded guitars. Excellent quality. This seems like a bargain. Anybody try one of these?

DANG! FYI--Dean (of all brands!) also makes a 3 P90 jazzbox that resembles the ZBD called the Palomino. Very surprising.

Yep. I own a Carlo Robelli ES-500 made by Peerless, which is pretty much identical, even to the pickguard and Bigsby. And yes, it's essentially the same as the Zephyr Blues Deluze, which was also built by Peerless. Excellent guitar!

That looks great, how does it play and sound?

Peerless makes good stuff. That's a nice looking guitar.

 

I have a Peerless-made Epi Zephyr Regent (made in 1998), and a Peerless Renaissance (ES-330 type, full hollow) made sometime in the past 3 or 4 years. Both really good guitars.

 

I don't know if you'll be able to learn anything about the age of the guitar from the Peerless serial number. You'd probably have to contact Peerless to decipher it.

And that has been the problem. The seller tells me that there are no serial numbers anywhere on the guitar. No way of knowing. A buddy was interested in it, after playing my ZBD and especially at $600, but is shying away due to the lack of info on it.

In the case of this particular guitar, I wouldn't let that bother me. You can see what it is; a serial number doesn't add any value to the guitar. Who cares what year it was built in. Why not e-mail Peerless and ask them about it ?

You know, I've mentioned that to my buddy. If I was still in the market, I'd be all over it. But, he's having trouble with it. I'll leave any sluthing to him, if he wants to pursue it further. Too bad. these are few and far between.
