Nice to be featured Uncle John. A fine row of history alive and well.

Very nice indeed. More four-stringers than three, which surprises me, but it takes all sorts. Some lovely colours on the tops there- clearly not varnished yesterday!

Nice to see they all made the move up the road safely 'UJ'  :-)  

Comment by Uncle John on June 3, 2019 at 6:38pm

Me too, Lonman.  That is the one made by Michael Ballerini.

Comment by Lonman on June 2, 2019 at 11:24am

PS:  I am going to put some red painted fret markers on the left guitar - Dave Lynas style. 

Comment by Uncle John on May 31, 2019 at 10:39pm

Thanks, Poorness, Ambrose, Daniel and Dave.   I think these are all good players.  The reso ( 2nd from the left) is my fave.  It plays easy and sounds loud and good.

The one with the big F holes is the only one here that I did not make.  It was made by Michael Ballerini, a good guy/artist/builder.  It came to me as a 3 string and I made it a four and changed a couple minor things to suit me.

The paint can lid - hobo banjo is getting more use lately as I am trying (again) to learn some claw hammer style.  I am proceeding at a snail's pace.  About the same with the fiddle.  I am working on a new 3 string fiddle that I hope will somehow make my play better.  Isn't that always the hope?

Really nice Uncle John. Sweet set. Third from left is my favorite. Kudos!
