1924-5 Stromberg conversion, 1924 Washburn style C conversion and a Gibson, Goldtone frankenbanjo (open back). I have an 1890's Sterling, a 1920's no-name which I'm restoring for CH and a $54 Walleroo (?) Ebay f-style mandolin which ain't bad and a Martin 000-16 GS something-or-other 12-fret guitar. Oh! And a borrowed '20s Orphium 5-string conversion. Wup!I just gave the Orphium back today. And an Ohm Minstrel -12 inch, 90s vintage with a leather head. It's a dandy!

Listened to my grandad play until i couldn't stand it any more. Learned from him, Steve Brainard in oklahoma, Erik Darling, Doug Dillard, John Hartford and lots of others. Played myself out of college 2 or 3 times.changed major to music in 1958. Taught classical guitar at 2 - 3 colleges. Had a trio with mason williams and bax taylor in late 50's early 60's.got hitched in 62. Quit the road when i did that but still did studio work, played with a symphony in texas once, taught lots of folks to play banjo and guitar, played around with various folks.developed a little arthritis but i can still play ok clawhammer.
