I just posted a review of another luthier and noticed that Louis Freilicher's name was not on the BHO luthier list. I hope this review corrects that omission. Louis, whose website is freilicherguitars.com, has done many jobs for me over the years on the vintage banjos I own. He has built two necks, a long neck and a flush-fret, both of them gorgeous, remodeled an old Buckbee to give me fretless to the fifth fret, reset a Washburn and re-mated a 1962 Ode aluminum pot with its original extended neck. His work has always been exemplary, fairly priced, and, what's more, he's a great guy and fun to work with.
