Hey Folks,

I haven't been around for a few years but I remember a guy who used to post on the forums that built long neck banjos. Do any of you remember who I'm speaking of? He made lovely banjos as I recall.

Ken LeVan is more than likely the person you are thinking of.

Yes, that master makes lefties, it's just a matter of flipping the pattern. I have a new order for a longneck lefty as well.

Wyatt Fawley was well-regarded for his conversions of older VEGA tub-a-phone pots to "Pete Seeger" longnecks of very high quality. He's in Southwest Pennsylvania, I believe.

He hasn't been active on the hangout for a while, though. Not sure if he's still in business...
