1999 M. Tezano-Perez “ Maestro”
(Spruce /Brazilian Rosewood)

I purchased this guitar from Alfredo Figueroa of Concert Guitars in 2005. I spent months listening to and playing every classical guitar I could get my hands on. I wanted to find the “Holy Grail” of classicals and believe that this is the best one I have every heard or played. Rafael Pardon a world-class classical guitar performer recorded his CD “Noviembre” using this guitar. The guitar sings in through all of the registers, is perfectly balanced along the strings, and will satisfy the needs of any classical guitarist. I have found the “Holy Grail”!
From Guitar Salon International regarding the “Maestro” (List Price for a 1999 $8000 on that site):
“Mariano Tezanos is world famous for the work of his father (same name) who stamped M. T. inside some of the greatest guitars from Ramirez during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Gregorio Perez also worked with Ramirez as one of his great artisans from the early 70s until recently. Considering the quality of sound, materials, playability and workmanship, this guitar is extremely hard to beat for this price range. The sound is very well balanced with clear singing trebles, and excellent rich, robust bases with great sustain. With the beautiful Brazilian rosewood sides and back, immaculate workmanship and big, Madrid-style sound, this is definitely one of the best values on the market today. This model, the "Maestro" is the top-of-the line instrument produced from this workshop.”
After a soul-searching phase, I realized that although I love playing the classical guitar, I have much too much going on to dedicate the practice time I require to improve.
The condition of this fine guitar is as new. This guitar has been well cared for. It has been kept in a humidified controlled environment, and has only left my smoke-free home for lessons. purchased from Concert Guitars. The number on this guitar is #336.
