Stanley Jay

Stanley Jay always admired rare and special fretted musical instruments, so it came as no surprise when he and his friend, Haf Kuffner, opened a guitar shop on Staten Island in New York. They named the store the Mandolin Brothers. Over the years the store has become a hub for vintage instruments and Stanley became a world-renowned expert of all things related to fretted instruments. More than that, Stanley brought his own passion for the instruments to each person who walked in his doors.  It was personally rewarding for him to help a player find an instrument they enjoyed.  He  was sincerely proud that his store fulfilled dreams for his customers!
