If any of you follow my blog, you know that I don’t “say” much. I let the pictures tell the story.
You will be able to see that I have installed the tension brackets (12) and have put the head on too. It actually looks like a banjo! I am really excited to get to hold this instrument and try to learn to play it!
After I had started on this project, I found a banjo on Craigslist that I wanted to buy but, I had already ordered the parts for this one and I couldn’t swing the money for both. I actually contacted the place where I ordered the parts (Stewart-McDonald) to see if I could cancel my order but it had already been processed and was out to be shipped (fast service). If I could have cancelled the order, I would have bought the CL banjo. But as the order of the universe would have it (orchestrated by God) I had my parts on the way and MAN, I am soooooo glad that I did! I think that I will appreciate the banjo so much more than if I had just bought one.
