I've been playing ,repairing, restoring and building strnged instruments since I was a teen ager.One of my favorite aspects of instrument work is doing inlay.Doing set ups on banjos is another specialty. Recently started making the "Retro Repro" Catalin style tuner buttons in the gumdrop and tulip shape.
