One I pieced together about 7 years ago from replacement parts. Hardest part was cold cutting all the inlay. Tenn20 inside, maple and metal everywhere else.
If i could imitate anyone it would be Carroll Best. The few recording I have show he had skills beyond compare!!! I cannot recommend his recordings enough... John Hartford, was a master. His style really speaks that sometimes less is more. Earl, what can I say but what a solid foundation to emulate. Tom Adams, amazing compositions and fluidity. Steve Cooley has just a down right amazing right hand coupled with a very intuitive ability to use the banjo to really help the band come alive. Last but definitely not the end, anyone jamming....

Been tooling around for about ten years. I still pretty much still feel like a tool every time the old banjos in my hands :) We still have fun together though.
