This post was prompted by a few photos I recently took to document some of my projects.
I fully disassembled , repaired some problems, refinished, and did a full set-up on my Banjo. Not surprisingly, it was a bigger job than I hoped for but really paid off in the end. When I built this one several years ago it was something of a rush job while working and traveling so some details were never attended to as they should have been. The action now is great and the fretting couldn’t be better in my opinion and I already see some real improvements in playability. I’ve been happily sneaking in a little practice after breakfast on most days and even a little at lunch if I’m motivated. Finally, I’m coming back to becoming an actual player reviving skills from 30 years ago. I’m a little sad that I ever let music fall out of my daily life but better late than never I suppose.
