Hatfield: Celebrity

Submitted by william p murphy on 10/6/2007

Where Purchased: art's wed site

Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: 3200.00 ($US)


This celebrity has a great sound up and down the neck.Those that I have talk to before I bought it.told me I was getting some banjo and they were all right.I didn't have to do a think when it came,it was rich and full.It has that great bluegrass sound when you need it,yet soft and smooth on the slow songs

Sound Rating: 10


The action,head and pegs were right where they need it to be.Art set this banjo up just like a pro

Setup Rating: 10


When this banjo was delivered by mail and I open it,I was amazed at the workmenship,I couldn't see one flaw.Its everything I hope for.I saw Art's banjo on his wed site after searching for months,you see I have A RB3-GIBSON of which I will keep,everyone has them,alot of banjo players are buying HUBERS which are good I wanted one different and this one is great and I mean great

Appearance Rating: 10


To see this banjo out of the case is one to behold,what a gem.I imagine I'll pass this on to my grandchildren that's good reliability

Reliability Rating: 10

Well what can you sat about Art.All his reviews from other banjo players were great and so his mind.Whether it was by phone or e-mail Art or Bev were quick to repond.They take everything to heart and do what you want,He's a real gentlemen thanks Art
