"Having a custom banjo made can be a daunting process. but working with Ian could not have been easier, more comfortable, or more fun. Ian has a great aesthetic which is what drew me to work with him. He was wide open to all my ideas and also brought his own great ideas and knowledge that left me with a banjo that I am 100% happy with. His communication by email and phone was really clear and quick and he finished the banjo in the time frame he said he would. If you want an unique electric banjo or probably any instrument for that matter Ian is one of the best for the job."    -  Colin Gulley
