Custom Fitch Masters Five
See this new Custom Fitch Masters Five banjo on the Fitch Banjos page. Bob Kelly says “This is a very cool banjo….sounds like a prewar, looks like one. In many ways better than an original…already feels like an old friend. The best of my five banjos and this one will cut the mustard anywhere, anytime”.
Jim Kish says this about his new Fitch Palomino pictured below: “This is the first really nice banjo I’ve owned that was significantly different in design from the others. About 8 lbs, which feels dramatically different from every other banjo I’ve owned. It’s amazing how much easier it is to handle whether you’re sitting or standing.The sound is wonderful, to my ears. It’s got a really nice tone. More gentle than a Mastertone type sound, as you’d expect. But not at all wimpy or twangy, it has plenty of range. It sort of seduces you more than whacking you on the head like my RB 250.It’s beautiful to look at, too. The blond finish and minimal inlay pattern really fits the banjo’s personality. The finish and attention to detail are what you’d expect from Cliff-totally top notch. The whole package is really well thought out, and I really think Cliff is on to something here.”
