This is me with "Nellie", the 1935 Gibson RB-3 owned by Earl Scruggs in the late 1940s and then by Don Reno until his death in 1984. I can't tell you what it meant to me to get to play the banjo that two of my biggest musical heroes used for so many of their most legendary recordings and performances. Thanks to Charlie Cushman for bringing Nellie to Banjofest 2007 in Knoxville!

That's probably one of the most historical banjos of all time.

Man I wish that were me. The best banjo I've ever played is the one of a kind Banjosauras.
