Custom Chuck Lee Banjo for Dan Coates

Dan ordered this custom banjo with Mermaid Inlay–it was a pleasure to build. Dan graciously allowed us to keep his completed instrument some extra time to coincide with a visit from Garden & Gun magazine–they came to the shop to do a photo shoot and article to be published some time this fall.

After receiving his banjo, Dan sent us a picture and the following comments:

“I’ve had (my new banjo) for several weeks now and am really enjoying it. The tone is sweet with the ebony tone ring. I’ve enjoyed the process from the start. You’ve been great to work with and I appreciate all the time you took with me over the phone to talk through the details of the project. Also, I appreciate the detailed emails from you documenting all of our decisions and agreements.”

We really enjoy customers like Dan!
