Nava mandola & octave mandolin

Postby Gary Nava » Tue Dec 03, 2013 4:55 pm

Hi Guys,
I've just completed building a mandola and octave mandolin; these are a matching pair built as a commission. Here are a couple of photos for you.

And here’s a video with a short demo just to tease you!

There are a few more photos on my website and details of pricing for those who are interested ;-)

Cheers Gary

Two lovely instruments and both with a great sound, Gary. Sustain is excellent as is the balance across the strings. Thanks for sharing them.
