The Popular Shape 999
This Rhodesian shape, the Peterson 999 , is probably the best selling Peterson shape across all of their lines. I don't know if it's the best-selling shape for Peterson, but I do know it's in the top two or three. And it's for great reasons that this shape does so well...it is, quite simply, a classic interpretation of the shape, beautifully proportioned and superbly designed.I have to admit to having a soft spot for the Pre Republic versions,which were referred to as 'Chubby'.They had much thicker, more substantial stems.
