A visit to Wyatt Fawley's shop

Recently I made a trip to Wyatt Fawley's shop in southwestern Pennsylvania to pick up necks for thirteen banjos. In my opinion nobody builds a better neck than Wyatt, and I have such a high regard for his work that I now represent him. So, if you need a new neck for an old Vega, Gibson, or other make, give me a call to discuss details and prices. Below are some pics of his shop.

T.J., who seems to run things in Wyatt's shop, inspects a prewar Gibson pot (he can sniff out a fake in a minute).
