What We Think

A rare treat and a rarefied sound!  The legendary Curtis McPeake is beloved in the banjo/Bluegrass community for his deep wealth of knowledge, his worldclass collection of early Gibsons, and his exceptional prowess as both player and producer of resonator banjos in the Gibson style.  This one in particular sports Maple here and there and everywhere (save for the Brazilian board), lending the instrument a bright, perky, and articulate voice over and above the raw power afforded by the design to begin with.  If you're a three finger Bluegrass player looking for the best, Curtis has spent his entire life workin' on it for you--here it is!
