I still have it. It has a pretty mellow tone that I love. It has been played to death. I've had it refinished 3 times since 1969 & it is looking pretty ragged. I have retired it except fo recordings. I'm ensorsing a George Banjo's my friend Tommy George made for me. Thank you again. If you are ever thru Memphis, let me know. Your friend, Randal

Thank you for the e-mail Joachim, I will be glad to post some photos. I have had my Salstrom Concertone since 1969. I love it! I have brought it out of retirement for a few jams lately. ( It has been refinished 3 times through the years due to travel & playing). I love all styles of banjo. I play 3 finger style with all forms of music. Your friend, Randal If you happen to do Face Book, We could also connect. I have lots of photos on there as well. (I keep my page music only).
