Remember the Planjo Banjo project?
The important thing was more about what I learned and whether I thought I could suffer through learning an instrument. This project told me that if I had the patience to see this through, whcih I did... perhaps I deserved a well built instrument?
Lo and Behold I started looking around using the knowledge I gained while building my Banjo. I was first shocked at the cost of a new instrument. Like many other things though the theory "buy the most you can afford" holds true for instruments as well. I just began scouring ads and postings for a decent lightly used Banjo. Then after many weeks and months of looking I came across a perfect price point for a Classic Goodtime 2 Banjo made by Deering, and the best part is that it was new and un-opened. Could not pass up the deal so yes I treated myself early... now I gotsta' lern to play the banjer'
