By January 2020 Robin Smith had built 2 Chiefs. One 5-string, and one 6-string….So I’m guessing the last Chiefs built by Frank Neat would have been in 2019.

Best to ask Sonny or Lincoln, Krakos are the banjos in production now if I'm not mistaken..

His new Kreko banjos have about a year and a half wait-time on them.
