My first resto

B&D Silver Bell #1,#14390

          and Day Silver Bell#1

This Silver Bell is what started me off on this journey down banjo lane.

I purchased it at a local flea market for 260.00 and ran like a thief in the night out the door with it!

I was scared to death that I would mess it up, so I really didn't get into it too far.
Glued a few bindings,polished it up,lacquered it up and such, then sold it for a goodly sum.

I used the money to buy all of my basic tools and books to start my shop.
