It is with deep sadness that we have received the news of the passing of Fritz Ober, one of GSI’s oldest friends and one of Germany’s top guitar makers.
Fritz was a great personal friend to each of us at GSI, and with every visit to Munich over the past 25+ years, we always spent quality time together. We have also come to know his son, Janis who has been working alongside Fritz in his shop for the last 10 years and will continue the tradition of instrument making started by his father. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Fritz’ family and the entire community of friends who knew and loved him. He will be missed greatly by all of us here at GSI who knew him so well.
