The “Chamberi” model, hand-crafted by Marco Tejeda in the esteemed Teodoro Perez workshop, is a remarkable guitar that pays homage to the vibrant heart of Madrid. Reflecting the unique essence of the Chamberi district, this guitar is a beautiful representation of Madrid’s rich cultural tapestry, distinct from the geographic inspirations of his brother-in-law, Sergio Perez.
Marco Tejeda, who joined the legacy of the Perez workshop in 2009 and has since become an integral part of its tradition, brings a fresh perspective to the art of guitar making. As the son-in-law of Teodoro Perez, Marco’s work represents the continuation of a deeply rooted family tradition in luthiery.
The “Chamberi” stands out not only for its connection to Madrid’s urban landscape but also for its unique bracing system, a feature that underscores Marco’s innovative approach to guitar design. This specialized bracing contributes significantly to the guitar’s acoustic properties, offering a sound that is both robust and nuanced.
In terms of performance, the “Chamberi” model excels in responsiveness and tonal clarity. It possesses a quick attack, making it incredibly responsive to the player’s touch. This characteristic, combined with its powerful projection and refined tone, makes the guitar an excellent choice for both concert performances and recording sessions.
The craftsmanship of the Perez workshop is evident in every aspect of this guitar. The high standards of fit-and-finish are consistent with the renowned quality of all instruments produced in this workshop. The superb setup ensures that the guitar not only plays beautifully but also feels comfortable in the hands of the musician.
Impeccable attention to detail is a hallmark of the Perez workshop, and the “Chamberi” model is no exception. Each element, from the choice of woods to the final polish, is carefully considered and executed, resulting in an instrument that is both a pleasure to play and a masterpiece of visual art.
