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.

Francisco Barba

Tone for this guitar is fat and balanced with a lot of punch, volume and flamenco edge. In other words - a very powerful and lively Andalusian flamenco guitar by every measure, while playability is a breeze.

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.

Wolfgang Jellinghaus "Signature"

The fingerboard on this instrument is not attached to the soundboard at all, freeing this often under-utilized part of the top to vibrate freely and contribute to the overall sound - this is an idea inspired by similar systems from the old Viennese style instruments, most notably those of Stauffer.

Paulino Bernabe "Torres"

This is a fantastic Bernabe concert guitar, modeled (primarily with regards to the aesthetic details) after an 1864 Torres named "La Suprema". Materials are stunning with beautiful and textured birds-eye maple for the back and sides.

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.

Ignacio Fleta (ex Norbert Kraft)

This particular Fleta has all the elements that one could possibly want from one of their top examples - tremendous power, perfect balance, deep warm tone and ample clarity between voices in all registers.
