With Dr. Elmo Shropshire and His Banjo 

Posted 6/5/2010 12:04:18 PM

At the good Doctor's home in Novato, CA. (2009). Elmo's famous for the Xmas classic "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer", and we're holding one of the three banjos I made for him between 1968 and 1982. This was the last one, and he gave me carte blanche permission to go wild on the inlays! But I was getting out of building and had been devoting full time to grinding shell blanks, so Elmo waited 11 years to take delivery. At first he'd call every few weeks or months, then a couple of times a year. Finally he was just calling once a year and I told him, "If you're going to keep bugging me every year I'm not going to work on it at all!"
