For enthusiasts of early banjo

"James" from Oregon just sent me a photo of his kit now that he's finished it. The color and the lustre of the finish are gorgeous.

That does look good. I like dark, when you can still see the figure in the wood.

Thanks guys! Shucks! If I had known this was "going national" I would have vacuumed the couch for these pics! Seriously though, you know Terry is being too modest: he did most of the work when putting this kit together and sending me a great looking piece of maple.  All I had to do was some sanding and finishing. Now, just how do I play this thing?

By getting Tim Twiss' new book/CD double-barrel instructional kit, of course!   :D

Thanks Strumelia! Got it! Actually, Terry sent it along with the kit. Am only up to Juba so far, but having a blast just noodling around.
