Pear Custom Guitars were made by Tom Palecki in Pleasanton, California from 1986 to 1995. Palecki was a product designer who began painting guitar bodies in his garage. He soon began developing his own designs - the first being the Voyager model. In 1991 he moved from his garage to open PEAR Custom Guitars and PEAR Design in a commercial building in Pleasanton, California. He installed a professional paint spray booth and some machine tools to help in the building bodies and necks. There were other Pear Custom models: the Shark and the Voyager II as well as special custom models like a Skull guitar made for the Murder Bay guitarist. In 2007 Palecki moved to Arizona and set up a new workshop - Arizona Guitars.
