17 Sep Teodoro Pérez´s new model of flamenco guitar is already working: “1ª Especial Flamenco Concierto”
It had everything: Sound quality, spotless finishes and making quality, power, comfort… Our impression was so positive that we decided to place an order of this model: We wanted two of them: a white one and a black one (Madagascar rosewood).
At present, these guitars are still in the making process, and the master luthier Teodoro Pérez has sent us several pictures of the white one, which we want to share with you.
Teodoro Pérez was born in Soria in 1952. In 1966 he started working as an apprentice in Jose Ramirez´s workshop, at 2 Concepción Jerónima Street, where he started to make lutes, laúdes, bandurrias and mandolins.
Three years later, José Ramirez III decided to send him to the workshop in General Margallo Street in Madrid in order for him to work as a real guitar maker. In 1969, after passing the appropriate tests, he was qualified First Official. During these years Teodoro Pérez built many instruments, where he stamped his initials GPM or 13th number.
In this period he had the great honor to meet the masters, Andrés Segovia, Narciso Yepes and other famous concert and flamenco guitar players.
After 26 years, in 1991 he decided to set up in his own company where their instruments began to be famous in all the world. Throughout these years work, he has been the sponsor of other luthier apprentices. He continues doing with his children Sergio, Beatriz and his son-in-law Marco A. Tejeda.
Soon we will show you images of the construction process of the Madagascar rosewood guitar … stay tuned!
