I got my new Sullivan in the mail last Friday (thanks Goldstarman). It’s a Terry Baucom signature model... mahogany with an old growth FF rim and a prototype Thunderbolt ring (similar to their new vintage 35 model). So just like I’ve done with a number of other banjos, my buddy Jack and I took it up to Shrewsbury PA to have our favorite luthier, Mike Munford, set it up for me.

Keep playing that thing, Tony. It will sound even more fantastic after more time. I got the chance to play on the Baucom Sullivan banjo a couple of years ago in the FQMS showroom, and really liked it.

It's a nice banjo. It's got a really nice sound and I love the slim neck. I can think of a couple Gibsons that I wouldn't mind having. But I've played a couple Sullivans and I've been really impressed by all of them.

Hey Bob - Sullivan makes a nice banjo. But there's nothing wrong with that Sierra that you have.

If I lived in the states I would have got either a Gibson, Sullivan or Hatfield banjo. But if I already had the Deering Sierra I would stick with it as its a very good banjo. But hey if I had the money well then thats another story....... ha ha
