Wow, getting TWO new banjos in one day....AWESOME!!!  You must be dying to play both at the same time- what a dilemma!   :)   

I once got two banjos on the same day,  11 yrs ago now, when i had Mike Ramsey make me a matched pair- one fretted, one half-fretted....my 'Hog Sisters' pair of banjos.   Genford, you really have some nice banjos at this point!  I can't wait to hear you play them!
