I am on sabbatical for the indefinite future, and likely will not be available for banjo work until at least 2024.
Consequently, I will not be returning any calls regarding banjo related subjects including work or commissions.
If you are a previous customer of mine and/or a friend, my new number is 615-202-5074, and although I will be hard to reach, I will make an effort to be in touch if you leave a message and return number.
I will not be available by any other means but the above number. I will not have access to the internet, so I will not be able to respond to the hangout message system nor direct email.
If you are interested in my work, the links below may or may not be of interest to you:

Chris set up my Gibson RB4 a few weeks ago and I am very impressed with his skills and ability. I recommend him if you are looking for set up or repair work done in a very professional and timely manner.

I bought an 1890s Morrison banjo from Chris recently....and it was the smoothest transaction I've ever had! He was so polite and accomodating and easy to deal with. He's a wealth of knowledge and is happy to share it! I've never had a more positive experience buying anything form anybody as I have with Chris. If you have the opportunity to do business with him....do it, you'll thank yourself!
