GUESS WHAT! I just bought a new banjo. Yep, went totally crazy and purchased a DP Hopkins Mahagony Archtop. I love this thing. I have been spending every moment I can playing it. Wow, does it sound great? Yes, it does thanks for asking. Top end bottom end this baby hums. I'll make a picture later and put it on later. Oh yeah, my wife approved but I'm sure she will want a car soon and I won't be able to say no. She just said she was on Craig's list looking for a car.

Wayne, Congratulations!! Did Paul tell you about converting my LouZee maple to an archtop? I really like it as an archtop! We should get together sometime at his place. As with you, I like having both a flattop and an archtop to pick on. Danny

Yes, he told me but I had forgotten about that. I Love the Archtop but I find myself comparing the two a lot. I still love my flattop also but I can see where the archtop will see a ton of use also.

Tonight from 6pm to 9pm at the park in Shelbyville there will be a bluegrass gospel show. You should come see Sarah Ward of the Ward Family. She is awesome and has one of Paul's Banjos. Look her up on you tube playing Train 45 anyway.

I've been watching Sarah on YouTube. If I can make it I will come and watch the show. I like the variety of pick'n either a flattop or archtop.
