We're asking for help with our new website. These times are very difficult for our brick and mortar shop, Guitar Solo, here in San Francisco since 1974. At the same time, this website is very old and antiquated. A new, up to date and user friendly site is critical for us and we are almost there. What's missing are the funds to finally finish the site.
We are asking for help if you can, and we've set up a gofundme campaign at: We greatly appreciate any help you can afford.

GSP CDs are now available for purchase as digital downloads - click on the link at the right of this page. You can also download or stream full CDs or single tracks at cdBaby or your favorite site.

Steve Porter Classical Guitar #37

Since its beginnings as a teaching studio in 1974, GSP has become an internationally recognized source for guitar music, guitars, ukuleles, mandolins, recordings, strings, accessories, and information. Catering to professionals and enthusiasts, our retail store, Guitar Solo, in San Francisco is the place to find just about anything for the acoustic guitar - steel or nylon. At this location we maintain a comprehensive selection of music and instruments. In the 1970s we were one of the very first in the US to import the great handmade guitars of Granada, Spain - now world renowned and highly sought after by guitarists in search of their dream instrument.

Guitar Solo has been voted "Best Place to Buy a Guitar" in SF Weekly's "Best of San Francisco" and The Guardian's "Best of The Bay Area" issues.

GSP editions and recordings have gained worldwide recognition for integrity and quality of content - introducing important new players, composers, and their unique talents and music to the guitar world.

Our own custom made classical guitar strings, are wound on a very unique multifilament nylon core. We were the first to market our unique nylon Super and Ultra Trebles - now used by several of the major brand string makers. We now have Super and Ultra Hybrid Trebles - a little brighter and more powerful than the Supers and Ultras. Quality of sound and production, and consistency are what guitarists have come to expect from GSP Strings. Users include Kazuhito Yamashita, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Marco Pereira, Marc Regnier, Asturias Guitars, Kohno and Sakurai Guitars, among many others.

We hope you find our website helpful and hope that you will give us your comments as we continue to make improvements. Above all, we greatly appreciate your patronage over the years!
