Playing Since: 1964

Interests:
[Teaching] [Jamming] [Socializing] [Helping]

Occupation: musician

Gender: Male

Age: 101

My Instruments:
My main "axe" is a 1999 Prucha Professional with Fults Parallel Lite tailpiece on Fults XYZ mount. I also sometimes play a Gibson RB1 reissue from 1994 with Gibson Granada reissue ring and Prucha bridge. I have a couple of Recording King (and "Flinthill" rebranded RK banjos) that sound quite good, but since I had stainless steel frets put on my Prucha, the frets have stayed in good shape and I don't switch banjos all that much. I do like the Sullivan Roasted Maple bridges (along with Prucha bridges). I think I have a Sullivan bridge on my Prucha at present, and it seems to do a good job.

Favorite Bands/Musicians:
There too many to mention all of them, and if I leave some out (by forgetting), that wouldn't be fair to them.
