Very cool!

And, even back then, they had to "apologize" for the banjo

The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree does it?
And not just The Tree, any good tree!

Trevor - you've tought us a huge amount about mandolins and acoustic guitars, and given us (in the UK) an unrivalled place to experience them.

All of that fits.

I have to ask though... Where is your chisel?

And, dare I ask... Where is the Banjo Wall at TAMCO!

Now that is cool to have a heritage of not only music, but instrument building as well. Enjoyed seeing this!
