And the winning choice is......!!!

Spent 1-1/2 hours at the music store this afternoon after work. As suggested I played the S6, that I've been eying up for a couple years now and the Entourage Rustic. Went back and fourth several times. Had the salesperson, Mark, who is also a very long time friend of mine, play the S6 while I played the Rustic.

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!

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly. I am amazed at how cleanly both bindings look.  Some finish touch up will be required, but the overall appearance is more than…
