new banjo!

Posted by erinmeola on Sunday, December 16, 2007

Well I just bought a banjo from Elderly (at least I hope I was the first one to order it, I know they are closed on Sundays and banjos just fly off their website like crazy!)  It is a GEO. C. DOBSON VICTOR (1880's) and it looks like it is in great shape.  I have been looking for an older banjo for a while now and every time I stop to think about whether or not I should go for it, it ends up getting sold before I can decide.... so I really jumped at this one.  I spent less than I intended on spending so in the event that I don't like it as much as I think I will, I won't be too upset. 

I am such a newbie that I am pretty happy playing just about any instrument.  I guess I just wanted to be able to play something that has been on this earth much much longer than I have.  Daydream about who could have held it before me.

I am excited!  Oh yeah... I uploaded some pics of it.  I hope Elderly will not mind that I am uploading the pictures from their listing.  Am I allowed to do that?  If not I will take them down ASAP and post my own as soon as it arrives.

Elderly and other vendors just love it when you advertise their wares.  If you purchased an old one-of-a-kind instrument, then I opine that you deserve the pictures of what you purchased, though you do not have an exclusive right to them, nor could you use the pictures for commercial purposes without permission.

Congratulations on your 'new'  banjo. Your feeling about having a banjo much older than you is understandable. I wish you all kinds of good vibrations from it.
Merry Christmas!

I think it's neat when you find something old like that. You have to take care of it because you will realize some day that someone will have it afer you. I once boutht a flute from a dealer in marine antiques in Florida and only after I got it cleaned up and working did I find out that it was made in 1830. Then I felt that I had to take good care of it.
