Default If you're a fan of classical/prewar solo acoustic archtop styles...

Rob MacKillop is now a member of AGF...

You might want to weigh in on this thread on the General Acoustic subforum:

Excellent news! I have been in the opposite direction to Rob, focusing on tenor banjo and mandolin in the last several months. We miss him over on Banjo Hangout.

Steve, I find plectrum style fascinating. Iím not a well practiced sight reader, so itís not something I play; but I love the sound. Iím also fascinated by the evolution of popular music away from the banjo and to the guitar. Thereís so much overlap: Plectrum banjo players also played the kind of arrangements common in plectrum guitar style, but about a decade earlier. Rob, of course, has demonstrated both styles.

Seems Rob hasn't been around for a few months - hoping everything's OK...
