English Walnut Standard Plus
I’ve just completed this English Walnut Standard Plus for
Tony and it will be shipped off to him soon. I love this walnut; it’s such a
good wood to work, looks brilliant once finished and makes a great sounding
mandolin! 3 out of 3 ain’t bad!
I’m Gary Nava, luthier. I make guitars, mandolins and other fretted instruments entirely by myself and by hand. I am now based in the Cambridgeshire/Norfolk Fens, after a move from Twickenham, West London. I made my first guitar when I was 14 and then went on to study instrument making at the London College of Furniture, during the 1970’s. I’ve been making them ever since!
