Perhaps  James could be talked into bringing one of those beauties to the Pry Barn next year?

Carl, I will bring them for you to play since I don't really play guitar. As you know, for the last couple of years I have been involved in learning to play the early banjo and it has become something of an affliction. It is taking over my life! In addition to Minstrel Banjos I have acquired several sets of Minstrel Bones and of course Ashborn Guitars.

 I don't post very often but this website has been a wonderful learning resource. I have spent long hours learning from the videos posted by you ,Mark, Tim, Paul, Ian, Terry, and many others.

 I just don't know whether to to thank you or to blame you.

 Those are really fine looking guitars. Enjoyed playing with you, Mark, and Bryant. Hopefully get to hear one of these fine guitars one day.
