My name is Ivan Hurynowicz, I was born in Buenos Aires in 1978. Gurin is the root of my Polish family name. The wood was always present in my family, where the carpenter's trade was transmitted from generation to generation. I learn to work wood from a very young age, with my father in the carpentry workshop in Quilmes, Argentina.
I began playing guitar when I was 13, and at the same time I had my first experiences as a luthier without even being aware of it: repairing broken necks, changing a normal bass to a fretless one, repairing the top of an old guitar, making wooden pick guards… until I decided to manufacture jazz manouche and classic guitars. This is a passion that awoke since I put my two loves together, the wood and the music.
