Daryl Perry is a renowned classical guitar luthier from Canada who has built guitars for such recording and concert artists as Fabio Zanon. I bought this beautiful creation from The Podium in Minneapolis after trying out at least 30 other instruments from specialist classical guitar dealers around the country. I’ve had quite a few classical guitars since then, but this guitar still remains one of my favourite instruments. Reluctantly, I’m putting this up for sale because I don’t play much classical guitar music any longer because of age and arthritis, and this fine instrument should be in the hands of an appreciative player.

This guitar is Perry's Hauser model boasting superb woods and craftsmanship. The handmade purfling is simply stunning…over a dozen multiple strips of different woods perfectly executed. The heel cap on the back is part of the back…very few luthiers ever did this, and Daryl only does this on his most expensive, custom instruments.  His custom-made rosette is also a gorgeous design in multiple woods. The top is European spruce, the back a beautiful, chocolaty straight-grained Indian rosewood, French Polish finish.  Tuners are Schaller classical with ebony knobs.

It’s an incredibly light guitar with a very quick response, balanced across and up and down the fretboard, suitable for any venue.  It has a velvety tone, especially in the bass notes. It records like a dream; I’d be glad to send you sound clips that highlight its tonal beauty, and I have many photos as well.

Ok, enough gushing. For more information about his current models, go to .  His instruments start at $14,500 USD, plus shipping.  I’m letting this beauty go for $12,500 US.

I will pack the guitar securely, and ship with a reliable shipper, insured for its full amount. A trial period may be considered, but you would pay shipping and insurance both ways; the return would be to my sister in the US. I have a U.S. bank account, so bank transfer in the US obviously saves you fees.

 Glad to set up a Zoom/Google Meet call to play the guitar for you directly, and have a chat.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you for your interest.
