Thanks James. I'm a little rusty. LOL I like the hangout name by the way, Possum Fat, Cool.
Beautiful banjo! Sounds great!
It is a beauty and I enjoyed your playing.
I knocked a $100 dollars off the original $3500 asking price for the tire kickers,LOL. Its a nice banjo for someone. Its not a Truetone, but I think its a pretty good sounding banjo. You can listen to the video and get an idea, I hope. I have played some conversions with the vintage ring in them, that were killer. I'm really not interested in trades. At least not right now. Thanks again. EE
Friend of mine David Carroll, DC Banjo here on the hangout, Formally of (Deer Creek Boys and Darrell Webb Band) was up the other night at my brothers for a last minute jam. Gaven Largent (Dailey and Vincent) playing mando. And Calob Cox (Nothing Fancy). David was playing my Huber thats in the add. So i grabbed a couple quick videos. Sound better with him playing it. Lol Still for sale as of now. Thanks, EE. banjohangout.org/forum/attachm...eID=36095banjohangobanjohangout.org/forum/attachm...added.asp? banjohangout.org/forum/attachm...eID=36096
Another price drop....$3275. Any questions, just ask. Thanks, EE.
That there is a fine sounding banjer
Thanks, I think its a pretty good one myself. I'm just thinning out some stuff. Can you have to many banjos, LOL. Doubtful. My wife has always told me I have a problem when it comes to instruments. I think maybe I'm on the road to recovery. No......probably not. The market must be really down right now. I would have thought it would have sold before now. Guess you just dont know. Some one will end up with a nice gold plated banjo.
Shall we have another price reduction. $3200
Standard disclaimer, but that's a real "nice price" for that fine banjo.
I played a Lexington (non Truetone) years ago at Gruhns and was VERY impressed. For anybody who wants an engraved (I like that engraving pattern Steve came up with!), gold, maple banjo in the Mastertone style, I don't think there's a better buy anywhere I've seen in today's market!
Good luck with the sale double E.
Thanks for the fine comment Old Timer. It is a good banjo. I'm still tempted to hang on to it every time I listen to it. I honestly didn't think it would be for sale this long. I reduced the price $300 from starting price. Guess the market is flooded. If anyone sees a reason its not selling, let me know. Thanks, EE.
Hi double E. I am interested in your Lexington. I am hesitant to buy a used banjo as a few I have purchased in the past had problems. And I am a lifelong beginner player so my knowledge level is low as to how to judge what I am looking at...the quality, etc. And there are no luthiers here working with banjos. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii.
So far, the best banjo I have owned is the Goodtime Special. resonator banjo. I know it is not to the quality of any Huber but it plays better and sounds better than any I have owned.
I find it hard to believe that your Huber has not sold given your asking price is about half of what they sell for new.
Also, I am not sure if I really need one of that quality level right now. I have practiced, off and on, since I was 13 but I am still no better than I was way back when. I do have an excuse though. I was always too busy to give the banjo enough practice time. So I would get frustrated and put it away...only to pick it up again a year or so later...and start from the beginning.
I am now 71 and semi-retired. I have been an illustrator/painter for over 50 years and still paint for a local gallery here. But I love the banjo and for the past two months have been holding to at least one hour per day of practice.
So to stop boring you with my story, could I inquire as to the shipping rate, with insurance, to get your banjo safely to Hawaii? And is the case it comes with secure enough to protect against damage? I am comforted that you have been a member here since 2008 and this online community is one that I trust.
My wife will definitely tell me that I should wait to make certain I will continue to be faithful to practicing daily. And she might win that argument. But I just have to ask about the costs and such. Thank you for any information you can provide. I think you can message me privately on this forum.
I had a Lexington a few years back that, having played awhile, I just wanted to try something else. Mine was on the market about 4 months without a nibble and then suddenly sold for full asking price. In my opinion, Double E is asking a very fair price and he’s been on the Hangout a long time. If you are looking for a Lexington, this is a terrific instrument.
Thanks for the recommendation Quagmire.
Hey Mike. I sent you a PM. thanks EE.
It's still up for sale. Christmas is coming. Tell your wife. LOL Thanks EE.
