So I had the opportunity to work with Zach from Zach Hoyt Banjos-Etc and it was seamless. From the moment I found his banjos to contacting Zach, he explained his story & how banjo #166 came to be. His descriptive style & gentle soul made my confidence in buying a banjo online a no-brainer. The photos, which were very well done, did not prepare me for the unwrapping of my banjo from upstate New York. The craftsmanship & wood selection, cherry & curly maple are phenomenal. (See photo) Then I played banjo #166 & it rang true. Thanks to a kind, talented Artist who made this year 2020 special! Do not hesitate to call Zach because He will not disappoint!
