Hand made guitars & mandolins by Gary Nava, Luthier |email@example.com
Offered for sale is this newly completed flat-top mandolin. Its design is best summed up by the Japanese word Shibui.
This mandolin has a simple elegance which depends only on its form and its materials rather than any unnecessary embellishment: everything you see is pure mandolin.
