Erez Perelman was born in Israel. He studied guitar performance in San Diego, California, as well as physics, maths and has a PhD in computer science. His first instrument was made in the University workshop as a self taught builder, but he has since learned from master luthier Eugene Clark and also from studying guitars at Guitar Salon International in Los Angeles when living near there. His classical guitars are influenced by the designs of Torres, Esteo and Hernandez.
