Restoration Main Page

The reason I repair banjos like I do is because I was self taught and my instructor was an idiot.


 This is a few of the banjos that I have restored, or are in the process of restoration.

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 delete one or two periodically, to create room for more recent ones.
Sorry, if one is gone that was of interest.
