Ex-Shinedown Guitarist Nick Perri Crafts Handmade Guitars

Tiffany Rose

Nick Perri, a guitarist who cut his teeth playing with rock acts like Shinedown, Silvertide, Perry Farrell, and Matt Sorum, has launched Perri Ink. Guitars, a company that sells durable handmade custom guitars.

Each guitar is built-to-order with keen attention to detail. After wielding, playing, and destroying hundreds of guitars throughout his career, Perri has personally crafted the Protostar and Solostar models based solely on features he values as a player. Perri has consulted with musicians, engineers, and designers in order to craft axes that are perfect for guitar players at all levels of experience.

“Never once have I bought a guitar and felt it was perfect as is,” Perri recently told Noisecreep. “Never once. So I began a lifelong obsession of modifications to enhance tone, performance, and vibe. Perri Ink. Guitars is a true dream realized, and I couldn’t be prouder. I set out to build guitars that could take the pounding professionals deliver night after night on the stage and in the studio, and place them in the hands of everyday players around the world.”

Perri’s philosophy is simple: a guitar is greater than the sum of its parts. “A great guitar doesn’t come from any one singular part. Rather, it’s the culmination of many, many parts all working together and complementing each other in just the right way,” Perri said.

“One of my objectives in forming this company was to lift the veil of secrecy for the first time. and actually include stock in every Perri Ink. Guitar and all the mods and tricks I’ve been doing to my guitars for all these years,” he continued. “You shouldn’t have to fight your guitar; rather, it should compliment your every stroke and accent. Never worry about playing the guitar. Only worry about what you are playing. These guitars are built to last, period. The proof is in the process. They are unparalleled and built to serve you, the artist, whenever and wherever you go.”
