A while back a fellow came into my shop in WV while visiting his parents who live nearby. He purchased a Gourd Banjo and CB Fiddle, my two highest priced items, saying he was a musician and composer from California. I got nosy and looked him up. This is him!!

Thank you Donkey. Ian will hopefully let me know if they get used in any of his projects. It would sure be cool to hear them used as part of a film soundtrack!

It's fascinating to consider where an instrument you've built winds up, and how it's used. Knowing the high quality of your craftsmanship, and to whom you sold the banjo and fiddle, I like to think your work will be put to very good use.

Right RTZ!

Thanks Keith. I particularly dug him saying he likes instruments that are hand made and imperfect.

Comment by Jim Morris on December 5, 2018 at 8:25pm

That would be cool Brian!
