I bought a Hatfield Celebrity today and man is it a pretty thing. Arthur does a fine job with his builds from all aspects, but the wood on this thing is amazing. It has a real bright sound and very nice pop to it. Thanks to Tom Greiner for making this deal a pleasure and for meeting me in Cincinnati to get it done.
My wife thinks this is my best banjo yet. If she is happy I know I am. I will post some pictures real soon.

You'll have to let me in on your secret on how you get your wife interested in wanting you to buy another Banjo when you already have a few of them ( Nice ones I might add ) mine always says why would you need another one you can't even play the two you have yet.........Dang voice of reason :( shes the reason I'm not Banjo poor I guess Ha Ha

Greylock, this is a very nice banjo, but my prewar ball bearing is in a class of its own. I love the sound of it and enjoy playing it more than any banjo I have. Of course this is only an opinion, but when a guy buys banjos, he is the only one that must be pleased.
Rick, I am lucky to have a woman that loves to see me happy and enjoy what I am doing in life and I know I can't play that well, but I sure have nice banjos when I do play and that makes me happy and thats enough reason for me.
