I bought a Morgan Monroe APPALACHIA today from the Fret Store.
This purchase was an act of treason by my "clicking finger" I'm tempted to lop it off but then I wouldn't be able to pick =) Boy who am I kidding... I have always found the act of shopping to be the most fun. Not so for banjo shopping, let me tell you something although I'm sure you already know... There are a lot of loyal customers out there, all loyal to the shop that sold them their banjos. That tells me that there are a lot of GREAT dealers and shop owners out there. This for sure did not help me in choosing a shop from which I could part my hard earned money to.
The choice for a good company who makes the fine banjos on this planet posed the same problem...Pretty much everyone who owned anything liked it and wouldn't part with it for love nor money.
So that being said, I really had a hard time deciding what I was going to buy and from whom. So this morning I'm doing a bit more shopping when wham! It struck me that my Canadian dollar is pretty much par with the U.S. dollar Moowahaahaa!! And at that very split moment my "clicking finger" tapped the <BUY IT NOW> button. How could that miserable finger do that to me knowing full well that I was working another auction which finished in 3 days! I might be able to sneak one new banjo into the house, but two? It ain't gonna happen...I am dead meat Blog can I hide out here for a few weeks?
Oh..I should mention before I'm lynched, I had to buy online. I live a fairly remote small town accessible only by rail. So all my shopping is pretty much mail order...I have no choice.

Steve, You've got to get control of yourself. Keep that clicking finger in your pocket or tie it behind your back. Without some control you could have dozens of banjos in no time at all.
Now then, that being said, if you can get your wife to say, "Why do you need ALL those banjos?" you'll have her. Once she refers to your banjos as "ALL those banjos" it means she has lost track of how many you have. Then you can buy all you want because they will still just be "ALL those banjos."
Hope this helps.
