Got an old Pot that needs a new neck?
Price Starts at $750, each application varies and so does the estimate. Give me a hollar and I'll work on a quote.
Best way to contact is to Email me.
I am located in a rural area near Richmond, VA with poor cell & Internet Service.
This is the 21st century, correct?!
Yeah, I can't believe it either.
I prefer Email and if you prove you are most certainly a walking, talking human- being interested in a banjo build, we can set up a time to chat on the phone.
