Other Custom Mandolin Styles
While Gernandt offers several "standard" options on many of his hand crafted instruments, each is built with the particular taste and preferences of the customer in mind. However, as an experienced Luthier, Bob does take on one-of-a-kind, special order, or special interest projects for stringed instruments.
F-style mandolins, with their unique carvings and meticulous details, are always treated as a custom order.
Hand Built Mandocellos
Mandocellos are of personal interest to Gernandt, as he is an avid player as well as a builder. The experienced Luthier also uses this hand crafted body design for a shorter scale ten-string version called a Cittern. Gernandt's mandocellos have a 25" scale length and a 16" wide body.
