top quality work , he whittled the neck from a tree and hand cut and inlayed neck and peghead( leaves and bows) for 1600.00 first quality told me that was all automated anymore and if i found someone who could do it it would cost a fortune.not so. james e. webb tomahawk,ky i am lucky enough to own the best looking banjo i ever saw!
