Well, my 2016 is off to a great start. Linda and I went for a "walkabout" and I found a wonderful old banjo at an antique store. It was in pretty rough shape, so it was affordable. It's a Gad Robinson 5-string ladies banjo with a 12" pot and 25 1/4" scale. Here's a video clip of the restoration process:

Mark, this banjo was lucky it found you. You are the perfect guy to give it new life.

Great find. Great video too, wonderful to see how you breathed new life (and music) into this banjo. Thanks for sharing.

Usually, my heart just starts to pound when I visit the Romero banjo website but I seem to have a weakness for 12" pots and that banjo is really lovely! Thanks for sharing! Great way to start your new year!
