Description

Born in Israel and raised among musicians, Erez Perelman found his passion for guitar making after studying guitar performance under Celin Romero in San Diego, California. During these years, Erez would frequently visit GSI to view the historical instruments that would pass through our doors, and study them not only for their structural and physical properties, but also to feel how they played and sounded. As a result of his natural disposition and interest in these beautiful guitars, his instruments are very traditional in sound and playability as well - ultra lightweight, fast response, big, warm, woody sound, etc. This is a beautifully-made instrument, featuring top materials including a quartersawn spruce soundboard and Israeli cypress (his second guitar with this material) back and sides with a CSA rosewood wedge and a tasteful mosaic in the rosette and tie block with a diamond-shaped motif. There is also herringbone and half-herringbone in the head, top, rosette, back and sides (and even in the buttons of the tuning machines!) which frames the lighter colored woods of the body beautifully. The lightweight build is reminiscent of his flamenco blancas with a similar response and yet still has his memorable old-world "classical" tone, full of richness and clarity. With a well-shaped neck and easy action, it is a comfortable guitar for any player. Although used, it is in excellent condition with only some minor wear in the finish. Striking in both appearance and sound, this is a uniquely fine instrument by any standard and we're thrilled to have it here at GSI.
