Little Neophyte Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument (34) RE: Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument 05 Jul 01

Mark, I tried to change my banjo to my likings. Switched to a thicker bridge, higher bridge, even had a bridge custom-made. Changed to a no-knot tail piece, changed the string gauge. I even raised the 5th string nut so that I could achieve higher action on the 5th string for my thumb. Did all that but to no avail.
Just like not to go around fixing them in hopes to make the relationship better.

Like Rick says, its not worth agonizing over.
But I sure learned not to judge a banjo by its workmanship. Those Bart Reiters are a might fine looking hunk of wood & nickel.

Miss Bonnie
