JUST got my banjo back from Chris Cioffi.  Man what a WONDER he did on this banjo.  Jeff & I colored it and Lacquered it.   It looked OK.  had a bit of orange peel but acceptable to me.  But I sent it off before it dried enough.  It stuck to the packing material.   Chris buffed it out and it looks great.   Of course after he had fixed a laundry list of fixables.  Like:  new neck cut (reset), plug & reinstall neck lugs, check fit of flange & ring, plane & re-fret, move pip & fill old hole, re-spike and the buff job. 

I'm impressed.  If you need work send it to him. Quick too (right now).  I think you'll hear more from him as time goes along.

I'M POSTING pics of the final product.
