Hi,

Looking for recommendations for a Luthier in Sydney. I've got a 19th century sentimental banjo that needs some work and I want to find someone I can trust. Thanks!

Good luck, I had a number of people from Sydney that would post their banjos to me.
Search here for Alan Hill. I made him a rim once. He was in New South Wales many years ago. He may have ideas

Thanks Leon, I was checking out that website earlier and some of them seem like good options. But I figured I'd ask around first incase there is someone here who's had experience with a Sydney luthier. I am hesitant to ship it to someone as I'd hate to see it damaged along the way!

I could do it for you if you want to send it to Brissie   https://www.john-miner.com/ I specialize in restoring vintage banjos.

Thanks @JohnMiner

I've been hesitant to ship it anywhere as it's so valuable to me. But I may considerate. Have you had experience with any specific courier services? Do you have a recommendation?
