Is Bart Reiter still building?

From Paulburnsartstudio on 8/15/2020 5:50:24 PM

I see on Elderly Instruments, Coming Soon for all of Bart's models.  I'm assuming he is still building, can anyone confirm this?

That's good to hear. I placed a deposit on one of the models, a 12" Dobaphone. Can't wait to get It in my hands.
You don't find many used Reiter's so I know there well sought after.
Thanks for the follow up.

From what I understand, Bart did say he had stoppped taking orders a while ago. He even hinted that he might sell the shop. But recently on facebook, he posted photos if a new batch in the works. Seems like he got into a building mood - and headed back out to the shop. Personally I hope Bart will continue building - completely on his own terms. I'd love to see him make a few banjos whenever the mood strikes him. Maybe even make some custom one-off banjos. BUT I think the supply of new Reiter banjos may be very limited. If you want one and Elderly can supply it - pull the trigger. ;<)
