Wanted to put out a big Thanks to Vinnie Mondello down there in Texas. I just received my tenor neck, and it looks great. Vinnie is one hell of a nice man, and he knows his business. I would highly recommend him for any of your restoration needs.
Thanks Vinnie, I'm going to start setting her up next week.
I dealt with Vinnie one time and I can say the same. A genuinely nice person to deal with.
Mr. Mondello answered a few questions for me once, and I'd agree that he's very helpful and friendly.
In the old days when a neck was bowed it was a death sentence. It was great to see Vinnie,s work. I have had other work done by Vinnie, but this was exceptional!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Regards to Vinnie and good playing Dave.
Having known Mr. Vincent Mondello "Vindawg" for the better part of 20 years or something like that.... I will attest to the fact that the man is a tremendous asset to the banjo world in particular and the world in general. A fine gentleman. Nuffin' more need be said. And yes, I do know and have met him personally. Shame I can't get him to move back east....
Thanks Mike. The banjo will be in your hands in a few weeks. Vinnie is Awesome. He told me a story about that hole in his bench....Howard's Hole......He used it for one of Jazzs' supreme guitar players, Howard Alden. Howard is a genius tenor banjo player, and this tech was used for one of Howard's banjo's in the past.
I had opportunity to hear Howard play tenor banjo at a fest in the past......Incredible musician.
See you in a few my friend.
Thanks Gregg, I'd wish to meet him sometime. I can tell by just talking to him.....he's the real deal.
I got my banjo from Vinnie. Recommend him also.
