I started playing the banjo in February of 2006, and I seriously haven't put this thing down. I first saw the instrument years ago in my dads basement -- it's a 1970's "Made In Korea" brand... Not quite as nice as a Stelling, Deering, or (for that matter) fender, but it's a great starter banjo. I remember being like "What the hell is this thing." Now I am late to work because when I wake up, the first thing i want to do (other than go back to sleep) is Play the banjo. Hopefully i'll be confident enough to go to Jams soon. Anyway, thanks for readin'.
