Microtonal Guitar – John Schneider & Mak Grgic


We recently acquired a singular instrument – an experimental meantone guitar made by the great French luthier Daniel Friederich in 1976. As you can see, the fretboard looks a little crazy.

Felipe Conde – El Tiempo de los Guitarreros


Check out this beautiful film about Felipe Conde and his children, Felipe and Maria, who are the 4th generation in the Conde dynasty of luthiery. Not only is the film beautifully shot, it also features some really lovely musings about the art of guitar making.

Brig Urias & Stephanie Yoon play Jon Roth’s Avidity


We met Brig Urias earlier this year. He’s a student of Christopher Parkening at Pepperdine and a fantastic young player. He came in with flutist Stephanie Yoon to record Avidity, a piece by another good friend of GSI, composer/guitarist Jon Roth.

Irina Kulikova plays Vassiliev & Gallardo del Rey


Irina Kulikova was back at GSI for some more beautiful performances. Here she is playing Mogiana by guitarist-composer Konstantin Vassiliev on a 2007 Gernot Wagner double-top and Vals from California Suite by Joe Maria Gallardo del Rey on a stunning 1929 Hermann Hauser I.

Wesley Park plays Bach and Simple Gifts


Here’s Wesley Park back at GSI playing Bach’s Prelude from the Cello Suite #1 on a beautiful 1972 Ramirez 1a and the traditional Shaker hymn Simple Gifts, as arranged by Ronald Ravenscroft, on a great 2016 Fernando Moreno guitar.

Olivia Chiang – Barrios Vals #3 Opus 8


Here’s Olivia Chiang again, this time playing Barrios’ Vals #3 Opus 8 on a great 2004 Richard Howell cedar-top. Though inspired by Fleta, Howell has developed his own voice, perhaps a touch darker than a Fleta. It’s a great instrument and Olivia truly does it justice.
