I own two of Frank’s instruments, and they are both my favorites!
I went to Grass Valley recently just to see [Frank] and Karen and to purchase a back up bow for my Coda NX. I have great respect for [Frank’s] instruments and [his] inherent talent in building fiddles, especially the five string fiddles. They look AND sound great! I think anyone who is interested in either purchasing or having an instrument built would do well to consult with [Frank] at the outset. I can’t think of anyone who is more pleasant to work with!
