A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
I hope this doesn't convene any forum rules, apologies if I have, but I'd like to give this group first refusal on a banjo I have for sale.
You can't beat a Clifford Essex banjo for classic style !!
is this still for sale and where are you based
thanks for the reply..
on reflection, i'll give it a miss
That's fascinating, thank you so much, Mat!
When I first got the instrument I tried to find out about Ray, but this was about ten years ago just before the widespread adoption of groups like this so I didn't get very far.
Can you tell me some more about him and the band?
Here is the picture of him with the banjo and the pennant taken mid thirties I reckon.
Hi - still got this for sale? It looks nice.
OK - how well do these old tuners stay in tune? Never played with friction tuners and steel strings before.....
Hmm - I'm in North Wales so popping in not so easy. I'll make contact again in a week or so to see if you still have it. (Moving house this week - not far, but still time consuming.) Did you do the work on it?
