Teodoro Pérez – Handcraft Guitars Family company dedicated to the handcraft construction of classical and flamenco guitars since 1966. Teodoro Pérez began working in a prestigious guitar workshop in Madrid in 1966 where he trained as a guitar maker. After 26 years he decided to establish himself and created his own firm where his instruments have become known all over the world. The construction of our guitars is carried out with the technique learned from several generations of guitar masters of the Madrid school, and at the same time giving these guitars some nuances of their own sounds in their construction. We use materials of very high quality: Palosantos (Madagascar, Indian, Cocobolo) Pau Ferro, Ziricote, red cedar of Canada, German spruce, ebony, cypress, etc…… The construction process takes between 1 or 2 months. It is finished with a natural varnish of shellac (French polish) to “muñequilla” in classical guitars and a synthetic varnish in flamenco guitars (can be changed to customer demand) this process takes approximately 1 month. We provide CITES documentation of the woods that need it in our instruments. The construction of our instruments can be totally customized to the customer’s requirements, wood, scale length, marquetry and varnishing. […]

Red Rooster Guitars Mike Margolis is the man behind Red Rooster Guitars. He has spent countless hours in his Los Angeles shop tweaking and refining his vision of the ultimate gigging guitar. The result is the Rodster ’52 and Rooster ’55 and their unique cosmetic styling. Margolis has played guitar for over 40 years, and he still plays out in Southern California, using his personal Red Rooster to perform live. With over 25 years experience in the music instrument retail industry, he knows what makes a great guitar that inspires players. Starting his own shop to build custom instruments happened naturally out of a love for guitars and a desire to present classic designs in a whole new light. The timeless image of Keith Richards wielding a Telecaster served as the inspiration for as long as he can remember. Mike is drawn to the Telecaster platform as a workhorse guitar and go to instrument. The wide scope of sounds covers all the bases, perfect for the working musician in need of versatility. Red Rooster guitars provide that same utility value for gigging guitarists looking for one main guitar that can convincingly deliver a wide range of classic tones, and still […]

Kelstone Guitars The Kelstone is a stringed instrument, 9 strings tuned all the way in fourths. The essence and innovation of the Kelstone is not so much that it is a tapping instrument but that the strings and hands lie in front of the player. This position gives the hands a lot of new opportunities and control over a string for expression and harmony. In that sense the Kelstone has actually 1 string, 9 times. It makes a big difference. Because of the new freedom of movement (compared to stringed instruments where the hand goes round a neck), one can make extreme and very subtle slidings and bendings and have a total new control over the sustain and the envelope of a note. It’s the same reason why Les Paul & Leo Fender (Jimi Hendrix), Adolph Sax (Charlie Parker), and Laurens Hammond (so many) were so important to music and expression: prolonguing one (or two or three) notes, being able to raise the volume after hitting it (them) and controlling it (them in a new way). If you want to hammer on strings, this is an instrument especially designed for it. And because of the new position of the hand all string-techniques […]

Little Guitar Works Jerome Little began building basses as an inevitable culmination of a lifetime of woodworking and serious bass study since the age of 13. After building his first bass on his own, the passion was further fueled after attending the Formentera Guitar Building Institute on the Spanish island of Formentera . He earned a bachelor’s degree in music and acoustics from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. While at Hampshire Jerome received a grant from the Lemelson Foundation for Invention, Innovation, and Creativity, which supported the research, design, and construction of the first Torzal ergonomic electric bass. In November 1996, Jerome displayed the Torzal at the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of American History. Jerome has worked for Parker Guitars, Collings Guitars and luthiers Luke Wilson and Lance McCollum. Jerome lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Melissa and their two sons Elias and Diego.
Jan Fišer – Jazz and Blues Guitars The first musical instrument I was made in 1999. It was my first and also probably the last banjo. In that time I was studying in Hradec Králové at the Secondary School of Applied Arts for Musical Instruments and Furniture. Because I was very interested in music and musical instrument, after graduation I have continued my studies in Professional violin-making school in Luby near Cheb. There I learned basics about construction and production of the guitars which I wanted to focus. Since 2005 I have been producing the guitars under my own trade mark Jan Fišer. Also I teach Construction of the guitars at the Secondary School of Applied Arts for Musical Instruments and Furniture in Hradec Králové. Because I was actively playing the guitar I got in touch with jazz and blues. These music styles had influence on my selection of guitar types which I produce. Now I specify my production in jazz archtop and acoustic guitars. I developed some own models and I try to experiment with the new woods and new design. On the customer request I produce the copies of well-known trade mark guitars, mainly from the period of the […]
