An Epiphone MB-100, bought cheap and cleaned up, and two banjos I built from Backyard Music kits, the second one (gulp) fret-free. Have had a lot of fun with that, so just bought a fretless Goodtime. There's an old guitar sleeping in its case, too, but I haven't touched it in a year.

Former college teacher (biology) and administrator on the South Shore in Massachusetts. Given the amazing gift of a heart transplant in 2006, or I wouldn't be here trying to learn the banjo again. Live on the salt marsh with my dear Susan and three cats, all of whom (so far) tolerate the noises I produce with the banjo pretty well. Work part-time at Barnes and Noble, try to find the time to do some woodworking, volunteer a little. Look forward to learning from you all.
