When Ken Cagle, the current owner of the original #198 pot (on a plectrum copy of the Ode 5 string neck) allowed it to be returned to the original 5 string neck I have owned since 72, I took both banjos to Tommy George in Memphis to switch out the pots to restore mine. Here he is -- you don't see to many photos of Tommy! Why is that??

Are you speaking of Ken Cagle (AL), the C.F. Martin rep? I have a good photo of him on my homepage.

Yep - Ken purchased the banjo collection from the family that had this ODE pot (on a copy of my five string neck) which was original to MY neck and has allowed me to restore it. I am having my baldwin pot redone in a similar fashion to the ODE pot to give back to Ken for the plectrum neck. He will still end up with a great banjo and I will have an all original ODE E.
