Here's the message on the Bell Banjo Facebook page:
Hi folks. Just got out of the hospital after my rare cancer surgery, cytoreduction with "Hipec." i've got banjos boxed and banjos to be boxed for shipment very soon. After I get my stitches out early in the week, things are rolling and banjos will be flying out of here. Thanks for your patience.
