Mike Dawson is a great source for banjo repair here in northeast central Indiana (near Fort Wayne). He also makes fantastic sounding instruments - you can visit his website: Cedar Creek Luthiers. I needed some expert repair on my Slingerland conversion and was lucky enough to find Mike close to home. It was very reassuring to find someone with the experience to get my open back in tip top shape. Besides his friendly easy going way, he is very accommodating. He was able to do my repairs on the spot while I waited ( and pass along some of his repair knowledge along the way). Luthiers (he makes open back banjos, resonator guitars, and acoustic guitars) are hard to find in this area and I highly recommend him for instrument repair of any kind. Thank you Mike.
