It ain't finished yet, My first banjo: my dad draged home this bestraggled thing when I was 12 years old going on thirteen,oh it was a sad sight the head stock was well weathered with crazing dust and age, the gold letters "Ore" could just be made out the next letter or letters had vanished in the ages of time.The head was another matter while not ripped or torn it sagged to a depth of an inch or more allowing the bridge to sink so low that the old metal strings touched the rim,(I thought it was wonderful ) it was summer and I wanted to fix it and play it. I lovingly began to wipe away the years of cleaned up fairly well but that head was a mess with no money and less sense I struggled on. my older brother had white buck shoes like Pat Boone and had bought a bottle of shoe white to keep them spiffy.Yep you guessed it.Very carefully I applyed a lavish coat of this elixir to the saging head it got quite wet I sat it away to dry .my dad was none to pleased.In a few day I took it out and as if by magic the head was now taunt and a spiffy white I rubbed away the powder stuff left behind and low and behold I could fit the bridge under the strings. I knew nothing about that twelve fret thing but I was able to get the bridge back where it used to set which seemed to suffice,we tuned her up!. it was a 4 string, in the old case was a mel bay book for a 5 string,and my dad tuned it to mandolin tuning a octive high,but none the less that summer with 5 string cords on a tenor banjo tuned to mandolin.I became a banjo player,Terry
