If you read the blog on my homepage you will note I talk about Ken Cagle and the plectrum copy of the ODE neck I have and that it was attached to the pot that was original to my 5 string neck. This is a photo of Ken and myself - with the plectrum copy and ODE pot - and my five string neck on a baldwin pot. This is the day Ken delivered his banjo to me to begin the process of restoring mine. My neck and Ken's pot was original ODE #198 style E. They are now back together after being seperated for over 38 years under different owners and I am having OME banjos rework my baldwin pot with engraving and gold plating for Ken to put back on the plectrum neck. Ken has to be one of the nicest guys I have ever met and was very gracious in allowing this to happen.

that is a spectacular chain of events.its plain to see why some instruments seem to have a soul. its because they truly lead a life of their own. we're just lucky to call them friends. In the pic i cant tell who's happier y'all or the banjos :)
