WE ARE HAPPY TO INTRODUCE OURSELVES TO YOU!
PERRY R. FRETZ
Owner - Designer, Builder, Master Luthier
Perry Fretz is a natural-born artisan who understands woods, textures, patterns, and grains.
Perry takes great pride in the skills passed down from generations of carpenters, artists, painters, and musicians.
Working in a body shop after high school expanded his talent with the air gun and finish work.
Perry was a hands-on employer in the construction business and a finish carpenter for over twenty years.
It helped him hone his skills and lay the foundation for his ability to master his craft as a luthier.
Perry learned how to play guitar when he was nine years old, and By the time he was in high school, he had his first band.
Perry has been in various bands and has owned dozens of different brands of guitars.
He always wanted a better-quality instrument and dreamed of owning a custom guitar.
Perry has been a musician in the Greater Phoenix Area with the classic rock band Attitude Cat for almost three decades, as the front-man doing vocals and playing guitar.
He was in the band Full Circle, playing the congas, guitar, and vocals, performing a genre of music, including classic rock, southern rock, blues, and country with acoustical harmonies.
Perrys' breakthrough came after meeting an icon in the industry, Neal Moser of Moser Guitars, and B.C. Rich.
Neal asked Perry to do the finish work on his custom guitars.
Perry jumped at this opportunity, unaware of where this path would lead him.
After building his first guitar, neighbors Justin and Samantha Berg came to check it out.
Justin Berg played with The Yankees, The Chicago Cubs, and several other ball clubs.
It was love at first sight, and they became Bad Boy Guitars™first customers!
Justin told Perry, "Once you play a Bad Boy™, you understand how special these instruments are!"
Perry has been dedicated to his craft since then and puts his time and passion into each guitar he builds, proudly made in the U.S.A.
