Just picked up a used one for a great buy! Have spent a week with it and I am very impressed! Neck needs shaved down a bit to match my hatfield. Other than that very nice banjo for the money. Real solid back up for road use. Hope everyone is having a good end of summer.

I grew up in a gosple bluegrass band that has been together for 30 YEARS!!! called the shiveley family. I traveled all over the eastern usa with them until my senior year in high school. I started playing lead guitar and singing harmony with the willing vessels out of lebanon ohio. I left them after high school to attend college in nashville. After college i began the idea of starting my own group. I played banjo for the backwoods boys for a while. I left them to play for another group that was very good but it just didn't work out due to our shedules clashed really bad. So all that being said I have recently been hired by the Wild wood valley boys to play banjo!!! I am super excited. This is the first professional band I have played for. Should be loads of fun and WOW these guys are super talented. Finally gonna be able to make some money doing a job I LOVE!!! I am now the newest endoreser for Hatfield Banjos!!!! If you havent played one you are missing out on the BEST and most reasonably priced Pro banjos on the market! Check them out you wont be sorry...
