A New Book Fully Dedicated to Spanish Guitar Maker, Vicente Arias, is Now Available at GSI!
We’ve added a new book to our store, and it’s a fully dedicated publication to Spanish nineteenth-century luthier, Vicente Arias.
Vicente Arias was an exceptional guitar maker known for the beauty of his rosettes, but his life and work are shrouded in mystery. Who taught him woodworking? When and why did he start making guitars? How many instruments did he make? What was his relationship with Francisco Tárrega? Did he ever meet his elder colleague, Antonio de Torres?
This first book on Vicente Arias, with a full-size plan of one of his guitars, invites you to join us in our research to learn more about him and to admire his achievements. It inaugurates a new collection of books on the great luthiers of the past.
