I consider myself fortunate to have had a great experience purchasing a renovated classic banjo from Carl. Carl's web store Second Life Banjos (http://www.secondlifebanjo.com) is aptly named as he breathes new life into quality banjos from days gone by. I am now the proud owner of a Vega style 5 string that includes restored vintage components as well as parts fabricated in Carl's workshop. Carl is clearly a talented luthier and went to extreme lengths to meet my needs and I was more than pleased. He kept in constant e-touch as he added capo spikes and finalized the set up. He packed the banjo extremely well for shipping and followed up ensure that all was well. If you want to purchase a banjo from someone who has a real passion for what he does, is very talented and really cares about customer service then I highly recommend that you get on touch with Carl.
