    Quite likely. Peerless is a OEM factory for alot of companies, kinda like Cort,Samick, Fujigen or Terada.

    I think Gretsch Electromatic guitars are made there too.

    OK, I got my curiousity taken care of.

    I played 2 Peerless Retromatic guitars.

    A Peerless Retromatic 1 and Retromatic 3 non trem.

    They felt cheap and sounded like a blanket was over them.

    The necks felt like cheap plastic.

    The pots and hardware felt flimsy.

    I don't remember the sound of a Duesenberg when I played one over 20 years ago..............I do remember that it didn't float my boat and it felt very plastic to me.

    Made in South Korea and sent to Germany for something.

    I guess Mike Campbell and Joe Walsh are given their Duesenbegs with a decent comission.
