Out for delivery ! After 6 weeks wait, my Hickler Standard Frailer will be here today. Mark Hickler is a respected builder in Mesa AZ and was kind enough to work me into his busy schedule. He does a lot of custom work. Elaborate inlays and such which he described as stressful. Mine has a few different specs then those listed on his page for the Standard Frailer model. Ebony fingerboard, headstock overlay, and blackstrap. ( he couldn't find his richlite so I got ebony instead !) The only two things I specified were to forego the 5th string spikes and add a cherry armrest. The neck is cherry and maple laminate. The rim and bottom cap ( partial resonator) is cherry as well. Basically an open back banjo with a generous scoop on the fretboard. Suitable for clawhammer style. Until it arrived today you can see a photo of it on his Facebook page. https://m.facebook.com/pages/catego...110861048997701/?type=3&source=48&__tn__=EH-R I'm a total beginner on banjo, but I retired in April and I have all the time in the world to learn it. Going to be the best summer ever !
