Thread Name: Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument
Subject: RE: Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument
I have a number of tenor banjos. The first one I bought in 1958 I did not really like but could afford nothing else. but it holds some good early memories. In 1967 I acquired a second one that I feel very comfortable with. We "Bonded" by being together almost 6 nights a week for 20 years or more. Recently I acquired an antique 1895 Bacon Blue Ribbon and loved it from the first time I played it. If I had to keep only one, I don't know which one it would be. Fortunately I play all three of them as often as possible. I do have a few others others that just lie there, they could be stolen and I would not miss them, they are fairly decent instruments but the fit is just not there.
