What did Mr. Levan build you?
A New Vintage Open Back. He's very enthused about the build and may post pictures here shortly, so I won't preempt him. Suffice to say, the pics I've seen are stunning.

I love his stuff. Congrats! Watch his segment on the Banjo Builders series. It's one of the best.
I know Ken was building two New Vintage banjos at the same time, because the other one should be on its way to me soon. I got pics of the finished instrument yesterday.
I got mine about 6 mo. ago; lightweight, 12" pot, A-scale, skin head, Nylgut strings. I love it!
That's so exciting - and just before Xmas. I got my LeVan custom in Dec 2012 and hope you enjoy your banjo as much as I do. I've kept the emails Ken sent me of the build process - it was such a great experience.
