Scott Zimmerman, one of the great international builders, heads the Asian custom shop in Japan. He is known for his supremely crafted Desert Rose banjos and his popular banjo bridges.

At IBMA’s World of Bluegrass show in October, Recording King unveiled a custom banjo model by Fitch. The banjo was a Recording King Professional model with an antiqued finish and reshaped resonator and neck.

With Fitch’s unique aging process, many show goers couldn’t distinguish between this custom model and a museum quality banjo from 1920’s.
