All-American Eagle

Posted by BigWhisnantFan on Friday, October 21, 2011

I'm now a proud owner of an All-American Eagle banjo, made by Johnnie Whisnant. Ralph Stanley played this banjo on tour in Japan over 40 years ago!

Hi, Abigail. I believe you can still order the CD online. It's called "Live in Japan" Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys. I think around 1971. Thanks for your kind words.

I am also a Johnnie fan. I took lessons from him when he was building his first Whisnant All American. Is your AA the one that is in Bluegrass Hall of Fame in Owensboro? I think it is sad that so many pioneers of Bluegrass (like Johnnie) have been forgotten. I remember going to Johnnie and June's house to take a lesson and then staying long after to listen to Johnnie's stories and have him play the guitar while I picked.
