GPL Mandolins & Mandolas


For many years mandolins and mandolas have been my passion.
Several years ago I initially made a mandolin for myself to use with a working band of that time. After enquiries from other mandolin players who saw and heard this instrument, I started to include mandolins in my instrument making repertoire. Mandolas followed shortly after.

I make the flat back variety, as these are far more practical to use than the round back type.
