The 2018 GSI Catalog – Online!

Check out the 2018 GSI Catalog, which, in addition to being online, is now out in the mail – our first in 8 years! While you can of course get the most up to date information about current inventory right here on the GSI website, the catalog is our chance to give an overview of the kinds of guitars that pass through our doors.

Arcangel Fernandez

Rosewood classicals from this maker rarely enter the market. Demand for these over the past several decades has been so strong (particularly in Japan) that they have become among the rarest of the rare. This example from 1961 is an exceptionally strong guitar with a huge sound.

Manuel de la Chica

This is a monster of a mid-century style flamenco blanca and as good a representative of this style as any instrument by any other maker from the period. It is featherlight, has a huge, raspy sound and great flamenco bark with piercing volume.

Jose Marin Plazuelo "Bouchet"

This is a "Bouchet" model nearly identical to the guitar made by his well-known uncle, Antonio Marin Montero, which features the lighter 5-fan bracing system and "under bridge" brace.

Sebastian Stenzel

This guitar has a vast range of modulation and sound colors and very good balance. Playability is superb, with excellent intonation - Stenzel uses the fret spacing techniques developed by engineer Ernst Frisch to provide the best intonation and playability possible.

Pepe Romero

Made by the son of the great guitarist of the same name - this is one of the "0" guitars (#160) that until now has been a part of the Romero family collection - indeed the label bears a dedication to Pepe Sr.
