My name is George Seymour and I think its high time I sent you a note thanking
you for your efforts on producing one of the best sounding banjos on the planet!
I am quite serious! I believe that although one component of the banjo is not
solely responsible for the characteristics of it's sound, each part in
conjunction must be able to contribute the best attributes or none will fully
succeed. The attributes you have built into your tone ring are nothing short of
outstanding. I play semi professionally on the weekends and my #6 sounds better
than any banjo I've ever had, and I've had a fair amount of high end banjos.
The Chief thread has been quite extensive as you may have noticed and with
all the banjos that are being delivered you must be very busy! So anyways
just wanted to say THANK-YOU!! Well done! It nice to know I've come to the
end of my search for "THE SOUND" between you, Frank and Sonny us working guys
can afford to have an instrument that will stand up to any prewar. So much
so that I've got another Chief coming, a maple, with the Flying Eagle inlay,
Sonny says it is the first maple to be configured like this! Keep up the fine work!
PS: do you number your rings for authenticity/tracking purposes. If so I'd love
to know the serial numbers of my banjos rings. Also you can log on to my web site
and I've got a few tracks of the #6 there
