Jeez this guy is exciting fun!
Talk about somebody that can "do it all"... Glenn Carson is at the top of the list for someone capable of doing all the hard stuff associated with a high-end banjo. And rather than just accomplish those tasks, Glenn is also most likely to have fun along the way. He's a bundle of creative energy.
Glenn has a keen eye and a remarkable hand. There's a reason most of the pro-level builders ask his for his specialties: Heel carving, metal engraving and inlay. But don't let his expertise in these difficult area stop you from asking Glenn to build a complete banjo from scratch. I know of few capable of making not only the mechanics work, but creating such a tasteful (heirloom) instrument.
And Glenn REALLY knows how to pick an office (you'll see).
You go Glenn! :)
