Andrea Gonzalez Caballero plays 2014 Pepe Romero Jr.


Here’s Andrea Gonzalez Caballero playing Manuel de Falla’s Danza del Molinero on a great 2014 Pepe Romero Jr. redwood and Indian rosewood classical. Pepe has made very few redwood guitars, and this one has a beautiful clarity to it.

George Sakellariou – Torres CD


We are very pleased to announce that just in time for the 200th anniversary of Torres' birth in 1817, we will be publishing a CD of George Sakellariou playing two very special Torres guitars – an 1862 First-epoch and an 1888 Second-epoch.

The Newspaper Guitar Challenge


Check out the Leonoardo Guitar Research Project, which is testing our assumptions about the need for tropical tonewoods for the back and sides of guitars. In the audio sample, they have edited together recordings of nearly identical guitars made with various tonewoods and even one made of newspaper.

Torres Film Kickstarter


A while back we were contacted by two direct descendants of Antonio de Torres. They were making a film about Torres and asked if they could use some of our videos and photos of the many great Torres guitars we’ve had come through GSI over the years. We were of course more than happy to help, and now they need your help to finish the film.

Yuri Liberzon plays 1912 Manuel Ramirez


Here’s Yuri Liberzon playing Manuel Barruecos’ transcription of Astor Piazzolla’s Tango Etude No. 6 on an absolutely stunning 1912 Manuel Ramirez, built the same year as Segovia’s iconic Manuel Ramirez that now lives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The Torres Playlist


As we celebrate the bicentennial of the birth of Antonio de Torres, who both established the modern guitar as we know it and set a standard of sound quality that contemporary luthiers are still striving to match, it’s fun to look back at all of the videos we have shot on these historic guitars.
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.
