We have photos of the latest guitar being made for GSI by German luthier Sebastian Stenzel – a stunning spruce and walnut classical that’s in the final stages of French polish at the moment. Sebastian had this to say about the guitar:

The center piece of the back and the binding are of quilted hard maple, also from the US, of course. Come to think of it, such a guitar is actually a quite international affair: spruce from Austria, Spanish cedar from South America, strings from France, tuners from Italy, Bone from Mongolia, shellac from India…”
