Orfeo Magazine, 6-10


GSI is proud to present the second installment of the gorgeous, coffee-table style book housing issues 6-10 of the online publication, Orfeo Magazine, whose featured articles have profiled the lives and work places of a selection the world's finest classical guitar makers - both past and present.

Marcelo Barbero (hijo)


The label reads "Marcelo Barbero (Hijo) para casa de Arcangel Fernandez". In 1967, "Marcelino" Barbero (son of the great Marcelo Barbero) was in his early 20s. This instrument was made by Marcelino in the workshop of Arcangel Fernandez, who was himself a disciple of Marcelo Barbero.

Teodoro Perez "Especial"


The "Especial" is the top model from the Perez shop, and offers the absolute best in terms of decoration and materials. The sound is very distinctly Spanish, with a full, romantic tone and quick attack.

Miguel Rodriguez


This is a first-rate instrument from one of the 20th century's most revered workshops. The tone itself is gorgeous - silky, smooth with deep, powerful basses and thick, weighty trebles. The separation between voices is superb and is achieved without the loss of warmth.

Kenneth Brogger


Built in his Fornalutx, Mallorca, Spain workshop, this is a breathtakingly beautiful instrument by Kenneth Brogger. He chose absolutely gorgeous materials to work with including a spruce top that is covered in bearclaw, as well as a set of African rosewood for the back and sides that has extreme contrasting dark and light patterns in the grains.

La Cañada Guitars


The "La Cañada" series of guitars is a collaborative effort between master luthier Edmund Blochinger and Wolfgang Jellinghaus of the "Milestones" guitars which offer a variety of period-style replica guitars of iconic makers from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Jochen Rothel


This particular guitar is built with a level of workmanship and attention to detail that is hard to surpass, and an elegant appearance that is near perfect. The mosaic from the rosette is inlaid on either end of the tieblock - a tip of the hat to Romanillos, whose influence is noticeable.

Fritz Ober


Over the last several years, Ober has been building some of the best Torres/Hauser style guitars available. In our opinion, he stands in his own right as one of the great contemporary guitar makers in the world. His style of sound is reminiscent of the "Spanish-style" Hauser I guitars.
