Introducing: LILLEE!!!

Posted by banjo_robb on Sunday, August 5, 2007

Here she is!!!

We picked her up about 11 a.m. today from Robin Smith, who is playing bass with Ron Reno up at Wind Gap, PA. Robin couldn't be a nicer gentleman. And what a luthier! The banjo is even better looking than I'd imagined she might be!! She is truly a work of art! As for the sound, well it is to die for! I played her almost all the way back home (a 2.5 hr. trip) & am on my way out now to do some serious jamming with my friends!!!

The first few photos show my shock & excitement at seeing her for the first time. The other photos show me with Robin Smith. Yes, even grown women cry, as the one photo shows.

Ladies & Gentlemen, please meet Lillee:

Oh my!!  She is a real beauty.  The next step is to upload some tunes so that we all can hear what she has to say. 

Very nice.  I bet you are ecstatic.  Be careful not to over do it these first couple of days.

     How COOL is THAT!!?   That thing looks GREAT!    I bet it plays beautifully!   Nothing like a new 'jo to bring fun and inspiration to your playing!   I hope you stay up way too late and pick way too much!    Too much of a good thing is WONDERFUL!

All I can say is WOW!  That is one sweeeeet lookin banjo.

I'm suffering from severe banjo envy right now - I'll go in the closet and play scales until I feel better.

All kidding aside - you look like you were given a gift from heaven.
