I am on sabbatical for the indefinite future, and likely will not be available for banjo work until at least 2024.
Consequently, I will not be returning any messages regarding banjo work or commissions.
I will be selling selected inventory overstock from my banjo repair/restoration shop here on the hangout, so check my classifieds listings if interested in parts, accessories, and supplies, and obviously I will be happy to engage in conversation related to items I have for sale.
If you are interested in my background/reputation as a luthier or musician here on the hangout, the links below may or may not be of interest to you:
Customer reviews about work I have completed for them on their banjos as well as some completed new banjos I have been commissioned to build:
