Teodoro Pérez was born in Soria, Spain in 1952. Later he moved to Madrid to study. In 1966, he began to work at the workshop of José Ramirez III where he learnt to make banduras, lutes and mandolins. In 1969 he was sent to the workshop in Calle General Margallo in Madrid, where he worked for some of the greatest guitar masters of that time and met famous artists like Andrés Segovia and Narciso Yepes. In 1991 he set up his own company and has since gained worldwide recognition.
This Concierto model from 2017 is strikingly beautiful with finely worked green mosaic in rosette, bridge and binding. The light cedar top forms a lovely symbiosis with back and sides, which are made of gorgeously grained Madagascar rosewood. The guitar has a differentiated, present and yet mellow sound, which develops marvelously in the room. The tuners are made by Alessi. A hard-shell case is included.
|Back and sides:||Madagascar rosewood|
