That's him on the 2nd row far right, Mane of hair FLOWING!
My good friends Burke and Gloria Murdock and a young John Huntsberger at the top
And the young man on the top right is Tyler Jackson!
No one has been more "Instrumental" than Mr. Buddy, in keeping Youth interested in 4 string banjo and Ukulele
Here they are performing together with the Jubilee Banjo Band in the late 1990's
And one of Tyler and his sister Lindsay at one of the Guthrie festivals.
The irony is I am working on Tyler's Vox 3 pictured here, and on this link, at the same time I have Mr.Buddy's Vox 4!
Now that's cool.
A good shot of them with Tyler's old Martin Vox IV and the

Sitting right in front of me, and making me NERVOUS!
PAYING IT FORWARD!
Me and my grandson Silas.

Blog on the Youth Band
Mr. Buddy went to the Vega factory and bought this banjo from the Nelson Bros.
My Father Buster was a good friend of the Nelson's.
He was a Tenor player as was my Grandfather, and came from East Boston.
Vega was a daily name in our household.
Its had a refinish over the years on the neck that is holding up well.
Original Kluson tuners
Richelieu Tensionator tailpiece
Fingerboard has suffered from refrets, I will fix all of that up nicely and redarken the inlay gravings
Neck is up a tad, I will adjust the truss and neck angle adjusters to bring the action back down.
That's about 1/16 too tall
We love to write in Vegavox's!
Tyler says its because all that Maple is irresistible!
Man, what a history, this thing has been everywhere in the world.
A few touchups on the resonator, I will make sure its not delaminating anywhere
