Manny Avalos is a Renaissance man. His expertise spans the subjects of mathematics, teaching, painting, music, and woodworking. After repairing a broken guitar for a friend, he was intrigued by the craftsmanship and detail that went into making a guitar. At 89 years old, Manny works out of his shed everyday, crafting custom guitars from scratch. It’s not about the money for Manny, instead it’s about the sheer joy of creating and discovering new things along the way.
