For over 35 years, Guitar Salon International (GSI) has been the world’s largest dealer of fine classical and flamenco guitars. Our primary mission at GSI has always been to promote the guitar around the world by whatever means possible. By building close relationships with both the makers and players of these instruments, and always maintaining a profound respect for the art, GSI has been able to serve students, professionals, collectors and aficionados alike. We have evaluated, acquired and sold the largest number of vintage instruments from the most desirable makers of history, and have subsequently assembled some of the most important private collections in the world.
In our selection of the best contemporary guitar makers, we have chosen to represent those that we believe create instruments that are built to last – both in terms of musical quality and investment. We realize that for most of our clients, a guitar represents a substantial investment, both emotionally as well as financially. As a result, many of the young luthiers we highlight as the best of their generation proceed to become the world’s most sought-after builders.
