A Perry guitar represents the finest in design, materials and craftsmanship.
It is the product of a deep commitment to make the most complete musical instrument possible, one with the potential for the fullest range of musical expression.
Perry guitars have a full, open sound with deep, well defined basses, clear singing trebles and a strong articulate mid-range. They have a broad dynamic range and an extensive colour palette, and are capable of excellent projection. They are heard in many of the world’s concert halls in both solo and chamber music performances.
Perry guitars are made using well aged spruce, rosewood, maple, cedar, mahogany and ebony. I work alone using traditional methods and produce a limited number of instruments each year. My uncompromising standard of craftsmanship pertains to all areas of the guitar – structural integrity, playability and all aesthetic details, but most importantly to quality of sound.
My work is inspired by the great makers of the past, notably Torres and those who were inspired by his work before me. A Perry guitar contains no carbon fibre, has only one sound hole, one soundboard and the fingerboard is not raised. Instead, it uses traditional designs that are known to produce great guitars.
My work falls into two categories: my historical reproductions, several of which are presented in this site; and my concert guitars which use traditional designs and materials in an instrument which meets the demands of today’s guitarists.
