Luthier Steve Klein broke through the guitar building scene in 1967 with the first major leap forward in the design of the steel string guitar in more than a generation. Considered a pioneer, a genius, and sometimes a radical by his peers, Klein fundamentally shifted the way that players, builders, and collectors view the guitar. GSM is proud to be partnering with Klein Guitars.

What are the benefits to branding and why should I switch from selling the name brand products?
Higher profit margins, creative control, brand loyalty, and repeat business. That's why.! Sure, you can sell the same brands your competition does, but the benefits of having your own exclusive brand of high-quality USA made strings makes it that much more exciting and that much more profitable. Just ask Blazing Guitars.
"When GSM came to me about my own private label brand, I was unsure. Then I received some samples and found the quality and sound was as good or better than the big name brands. They helped me through the art process and now I sell more of our Blazing Guitar Strings to our customers and they are loving it !." - Dan Goodall, Blazing Guitars. Walla Walla Washington.
