George Sakellariou - 2014 Stephen Hill


We were so pleased to welcome back George Sakellariou this week, and we’ll have videos of his premiering over the next few weeks. To kick it off, here he is playing the Weiss Chaconne in a minor on our first guitar from Spain-based luthier Stephen Hill.

Player Spotlight: Grisha Goryachev


We love when internationally-acclaimed guitar virtuoso Grisha Goryachev visits us here at GSI. His brilliant guitar demonstrations are among the most popular videos on our YouTube channel, so we decided it was high time to share Grisha's story about his life as a guitarist.

Luthier: Stephen Hill


Stephen made his first instrument in 1985 and by 1988, he was traveling to Spain, learning flamenco and visiting guitar workshops. Stephen’s guitars are characterized by their powerful and responsive yet refined sound, making them the preferred choice for many players.
Thank you for visiting Guitar Salon International, the world’s largest dealer of fine classical and flamenco guitars since 1983, and the premier online community and resource for guitar related discussion, entertainment and education.

The GSI website offers hundreds of performance videos, thousands of guitar listings in both an active webstore and our museum archive, a news blog and countless reference resources.
