"I know this is really late but I was wondering if you had any scans of the music inside this tutor. I've been on the hunt for music published with the 7 string banjo in mind and this seems to fit the bill. I'm hoping to eventually run…"
No worries mate. Our old mutual mate Dave Wade kept me up to date as to your progress. So stay on top, as there are not many of us good guys left. Luckily, I'm not flooded out. Anyway, there is always a ice cold beer in my fridge for you. Keep smiling. Ray
thanks for confirming the origins richard.it has been in a case in one of my neibours loft for 50 yrs.the case has an essex label in it .i traced the case on the net 1920s.the last owner put his name on the skin and the date ..1961.but i knew it was older than that ....ie..the grover tuners.i will have to search for one more.i saw an abbott on ebay and the 5th string was on the neck ...this one goes trough a tunnel in the fingerboard.....is it an earlyer model perhaps?...it would be good to find out...thanks again....allan
thats a good idea richard,ime afraid ime a novice so far .i would rather have 4 strings at the moment...i fingerpick on my guitars but the string spacing in alian to me at the moment ...i will get another bridge and spread the strings a bit...thanks
