I have known Chris many years now dating back to the days he worked at Huber Banjos. Chris, Steve, and myself spent a lot of time "slappin down" different banjos and setups. I trusted Chris with the neck set on my new neck that Steve built for my Gibson PB-3 serial number 9524 series (the Ebay banjo). It was dead on. Steve actually played that banjo on several gigs with Kenny and Amanda Smith. Then I was fortunate enough to purchase an arch top one piece flange Gibson Granada from Wyatt Fawley. It was in pretty rough shape and after I purchased a gold style 18 original Flathead ring and it was installed along with a new neck constructed and once again Chris rose to the occasion on the setup. There were many different Huber models I purchased or traded for during that period that I had him match the setup on also. I remember a 20's style 4 arch top 2 piece flange chrome banjo that Chris set up and Steve and I both thought it was as good as any flat head banjo we'd played in a while at that time. There were several more arch tops that he set up that I played and the were all great. I dubbed him the master of arch top setup. I would highly recommend Chris for any I mean ANY type of repair, setup, new construction on your banjo. Feel free to contact me also for an individual recommendation for Chris. I would trust him with my banjo even if I was Earl!
