This article in Bluegrass Today pictures Noam holding what looks like an old Granada? Is he a Granada man now?

He sold his top tension. I'll try to find the interview, possibly a Fretboard Journal podcast

I saw that article too, however, in the latest Artistworks promo video, he seems to be playing it. Old footage? Got it back? Newer version?

He got his TB - 7 back. I forget where I heard/read that, but when he decided to sell it originally, he sold it to a friend, who was nice enough to sell it back to him when he wanted it back. He has quite the array of banjos to choose from. I got to play a Nechville that Tom custom made for him at Wintergrass a few years back. Tom had it there at the festival before shipping it out to him.

That's a pretty old photo. I think I heard he sold the Granada and reacquired the TB-7.

Last year at spbgma he was back playing an old top tension, not sure if it was the one he previously sold.

That is an old photo. I talked with him after a show a couple of years ago and he said he sold that Granada. He's back to playing the top tension now.
