Most recent is a 1929 Paramount Style C that I rescued. My favorite is a late 1800's clad Buckbee 12 1/8" pot with a newer Walnut Dobson style neck. Various other 5-strings, and some not-so-five-string ones.
Folks I grew up on. Most everyone on 78's, and a bunch of contemporaries too numerous to list.

Clawhammer consumed, openback obsessed. But I like good picking on a resonator too. Fiddlers go way back there on both Mom and Dad's sides, and Dad played banjo and guitar. I guess I like the older sound and older tunes the best, but it is all good. And I'm not really 89 years old. Yet.
