OLDER RESTORATIONS &
ARCHIVED PAGES
1999- 2016
 



These are a few of the banjos and other instruments  that I have owned or restored that were of interest to myself and to others
When I repair an instrument I do this as a service for my customers so they may view the progress of the instrument, and to participate in the repairs.
I find this is very popular for those who want a few tips that are contained within the pages.
Its like stopping by for a "Cyber" coffee and hanging out at the "Haven"
I will never be able to catch up with how many I used to have online, Site crash in 2010 was hard on me.
But I go in when I can and re-add ones that were special to me.
