I know its not made in Japan but I quite fancy one of these, has anybody had any experience of Peerless guitars?

I have a Peerless Songbird with P90, same as a Casino or Gibson ES-330.
The build quality is very good, mine is in natural finish not a flaw, and the tone is quite good. In my case no need to replace the pickups. No scratchy pots or switch, which is quite good on a hollow guitar with no access to the electronics.

Very good quality for the money, way above Epiphone Casino.
The guitar by itself is resonant and you can feel each string vibration in the neck and the body. The headstock is more elegant too!

I tried a J. Lennon inspired Epi, I still prefer my Peerless which is cheaper but doesn't sound choked like the Epi. That's just my personal impression, may be someone else will feel the opposite.
