The fretboard looks like it could drink a quart of lemon oil, but the neck seems to be in great shape - with one problem.

Day 16: The Banjo Killer slays again!

This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it. After working for three weeks to painstakingly restore Bryan Sutton's flood damaged Banjo Killer, Shin Ichikawa finally got to test drive it today!
