About Fibonacci Guitars:
FIBONACCI® GUITARS evolved as a result of a difference in direction taken between Peerless Guitars in Korea, and its marketing and product development team based in the UK. For many years now, the team behind FIBONACCI® has been instrumental in collaborating with various, artists, designers and luthiers in developing, and delivering to market, many of the recent releases previously manufactured, under license, by Peerless. Notably, releases such as the Martin Taylor Maestro & Virtuoso Signatures, the Retromatic ‘P’ & ‘B’ series, and most recently, the Jezebel and Retromatic 131 range. These collaborations continue at FIBONACCI® with all of our designs now independently manufactured and branded under FIBONACCI GUITARS, or under the artist's own signature.
Located in London, one of the World’s most vibrant international hubs for music, FIBONACCI® GUITARS is heavily influenced by its surrounding environment, and is settling nicely into its new facility adjacent to our independent recording studio. Our studio is critically important in the development of new products. It ensures that the new designs are exposed to a wide variety of players, and are tested in a ‘real’ and demanding environment for refinement, before going into production. In fact, it is the case that there are numerous recent album releases with recordings of FIBONACCI® prototype guitars ‘sprinkled’ all over them as part of this ongoing research and development process.
All of the materials specified to produce a FIBONACCI® GUITAR, are seasoned and responsibly sourced without restriction, from various suppliers around the world. All final assembly, painting, nitrocellulose lacquering and hand finishing, using genuine quality components, takes place in the UK. All of the hardware products specified for use on a FIBONACCI® GUITAR are guaranteed to be genuine branded parts, produced only by authorised manufacturers.
With the greatest of respect accorded to the mathematical genius of LEONARDO FIBONACCI®, the evolution of the ‘GOLDEN RATIO’ and all things ‘PHI’, other than musical scales, we do not play any ‘numbers’ game. The emphasis at FIBONACCI® GUITARS is on quality, not quantity as we are in the privileged position of being under no pressure to compromise on any quality dictated by CEO's, or shareholders in a far off distant land.

We have the utmost confidence that what we are creating is something very special.
