The 5129 marries a black body to a Firebird Red top, then finishes it off with DeArmond 2000 pickups. It was inttroduced in 2003. The earliest Peerless-made examples differ from later models in several ways. Most noticeable are the stud-mounted bridge (rather than floating) and the B70 bridge rather than a B60.

27 examples are in the Gretsch-GEAR database.
