Thanks for your quick reply. I have bought from Bernunzio. Haven't seen much on Reverb--maybe I need to go there more often.
I have had luck on some of the online auction sites.
I was just wondering if the folks here on MinstrelBanjo ever buy and sell period instruments, or if modern replicas dominate. It is certainly easier to get the modern instruments...
In answer to your query, if you haven't already seen them 'Elderly Instruments' have at the present time two or three of the very instruments your asking about. I hope you've just won the lottery though if your interested in purchasing any of them. I would love to hear how they sound.
I did see those, and have been trying to find a friend willing to buy me the Boucher banjo for Christmas. So far, no luck...bunch of tightwads! lol
