It is important to mention that he is also a fantastic classical guitar player, which is rare to see with a luthier and makes him that much more in control, giving him better feel and sensitivity for his craft. This particular recipe makes his instruments shine amongst the rest of the crowd both in terms of acoustics and aesthetic, and I can testify to all of that.
After years of knowledge gained mastering his craft, he has finally reached the peak of his career as a Master Luthier of Vietnam, with recognition worldwide. He has had countless customers from Singapore, France, UK, USA and Vietnam. Some of his guitars go for up to 10,000 euros when selling abroad, where the average price is between 5,000 to 7,000 euros. He also shared that the price tends to go very high abroad as foreigners love hand-made guitars.
It is always a pleasure, as an artist and photographer myself, picking topics and honoring the people, artists and artisans of Vietnam such as Giang Van Than. I strongly encourage any guitarists and other music lovers to try his wonderful instruments and pay him a visit.
