Guitar Finders International has as its purpose the advancement of the guitar in all its aspects. It is our desire to make available some of the finest guitars built by master craftsmen. As teachers and performers our aim is to help you, the guitarist, find the best quality instruments in all price ranges, study materials, and accessories.
As a Lecturer for over thirty years at the University of California, Riverside, and other universities, Patrick Read has experience in all facets of guitar playing. He was a student of the late teachers Sophocles Papas and Manuel López Ramos, who gave him an expressive technique for playing the guitar. Much of what he learned will be passed along to you in the Patrick’s Blog on this site. We hope that you will feel free to contact us at any time to discuss matters of importance to you as a guitarist and look forward to your feedback on guitar matters.
