All flatheads: I got a 1937 (?) style-75 (original flathead tone ring) with a Frank Neat neck, a 1930 style-3 conversion w/ a Blaylock Bear Tracks no-hole tone ring and a Scorpion neck, and a 1938 (?) style-75 with a Blaylock #89 tone ring and an old Neat neck. The Gibson composite w / Sullivan solid tone ring which was my main banjo forever belongs to my son now. I also have a couple openbacks: a 1980 (?) Arthur E. Smith Whyte Ladye (unique, set up with a John Balch hide head), and a 1980 Arthur E. Smith Shelburne I. Last but not least, I have a few old Gibson pots waiting to be necked...
Too many for the available space... As far as banjo players, though, I must say that Crowe is #1 in my list.

Banjo player with the band Red Wine since 1978. I build bridges, guitars, banjos (mostly conversion necks in fact). Got a day job too.
