Cliff Fitch has done a host of repair and setup work for me with fantastic results. One job in particular that comes to mind is a parts banjo that I had a resonator for that was considerably rough. I almost threw it away it looked so bad. I sent it to Mr. Fitch to see if he could do anything with it, and to my amazement, he stripped it, repaired it and finished it to look as new.
He has refretted several necks for me, each with perfect results. No intonation issues or damage to the binding or fingerboard. They each looked 100% original.
In addition to all the repairs he has done for me, I happen to own three of Cliff’s custom made banjos. The fit and finish is exemplary as well as the great tone they have.
I would highly recommend Cliff Fitch to anyone for any of your banjo repairs or custom made parts.
