Korean guitar maker, Moonseok Choi, shares the photos of his new guitar!

Coming Soon

Korean luthier, Moonseok Choi, has just finished building another beautiful instrument for GSI. Moonseok is a maker with over 15 years of experience in guitar building. He studied lutherie with Om Taechang in Seoul from 2002-2005 and completed his Master's degree in Musical Instrument Making at the Westsaechsiche Hochschule in Zwickau, Germany, where he lived from 2006-2010.

Moonseok's aesthetic design is inspired by the sea and nature. He spent a lot of time in Malmö, Sweden, located near the Baltic Sea, where he fell in love with the color of the sea. He used a very elegant "aquamarine" stone in the tie-block as a reference to the sea. You can also observe the fish-like shapes in the rosette and a subtle touch of the color blue present in the rosette purflings and the bridge.

Moonseok mainly builds traditional guitars and prefers classical designs. Check out some sneak peek photos below! GSI is pleased to be representing this fine maker exclusively in the USA.
