Six months ago I had my instructer and local Missoula bano builder, Mike Bennett (www.bennettsmusicstudio.com/banjos.htm) start on my lifetime "keeper" banjo. The guts are a OFF Sullivan rim with a Huber tone ring. The neck Mike built has some great character and is from 25 year old walnut that he said, "for some reason he never used". The resonator too is full of character and walnut in construction. Mike did a fantastic job and deserves credit beyond this simple post. Checkout my home page for photos although they dont do the banjo any justice.
