This is an insight into my instrument making workshop. Guitars, mandolins and other fretted instruments, built to the highest standards by hand.

Paul’s Standard Plus Mandolin
Just in case you’ve been wondering what’s happened to Paul’s
mandolin, here are a couple photos of the purflings and bindings. The
herringbone has come out really well- I like to use brown (as opposed to black)
herringbone so that visually, it merges with rosewood bindings.
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!
