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 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.

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.

Coming Soon – Henner Hagenlocher


We have some photos of what will be the next guitar coming to us from Granada luthier Henner Hagenlocher. It will be a spruce-top classical, and you can see the gorgeous back and sides for yourself.
