Pearl and Metal
By Steve Caddick
I learned this skill
while working for the L.G.Balfour company in Attleboro, MA. I was there
for 13 years in the early 70's and 80's. One of the things I did was to
work on the World Series Trophy for all 13 years I was there, just a little
bragging there, never got to work on one for the Red Sox tho !
One of the things
I do is to re-engrave worn gravings in pearl on mostly high end
Vega banjos and also on B&D banjos with the engraved fingerboards made
of early plastic. I also do new work on new banjos and banjo parts like
armrests, tension hoops, flanges etc.
Take a look and if
you have something you need done you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am very reasonable when it comes to cost. I also have original Vega flanges
that can be custom engraved to a design of your choice. Or if you are missing
a flange plate or 2, I can provide replacements as I have the original
Vega flange plate stamping die set. I got that on E-Bay 10 years ago.
