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.

German Vazquez Rubio "Custom Elite"

This is the top-of-the-line model from GV Rubio in every way. It is built with only his finest, most precious materials, features his unique and sophisticated bracing pattern, and shows off his most delicate, refined craftsmanship in the carving, inlay and finish work.

Francois Leonard

This guitar was built by the talented François Leonard who has been making classical guitars for the past 20 years, starting at the age of 22. His workshop is located in Lorient, France. François applies what he has learned from his time spent with English luthiers, building at Lakewood Guitars in Germany, and from his good friend Tobias Berg.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
