Occupation: banjo picker, but i drive a semi to keep from starvin to death!
i play a banjo that i bought from sonny osborne about 10 years ago. i've owned over 100 banjos since i started playing in 74 and i've kept this one longer than any of them. i recently got in the mood for a new ax and sold the osborne clone and bought a new gibson retro 4, its shaping up to be a good ax, but i wanted something that would retain its value, since gibson only made 40 of them, this should hold better than others, it number 12 of 40.
this is a hard topic for me since i worked the road for years with the bob lewis family, the ezells, vernon macintyre, josh graves and kenny baker. i met and became friends with and still am good friends with alot of well know and popular faces in bluegrass, and alot of my experiences with them were not just casual, so i get accused of being a name droper, i wont apoligize for having lived a life on the road that most people couldn't and wouldnt do even if they could.
