After some fancy footwork with family members and the world class Musical Instrument Museum, Phoenix, Arizona. today my grandpa Harry George's TRUJO banjo is on temporary loan and on display at MIM.
Here I am presenting the TRUJO to the Musical Instrument Museum, Phoenix, Arizona.

And, at this link, you can listen John Jorgenson playing grandpa's Columbia Record release "Ghost Dance"
Here is the original Columbia Record:

Thank you for making this amazing banjo available for display!

A real workout for H. George on that banjo is "Wabash Blues". Around 1min into this recording he uses the palm mute extensively for some crazy effects.

An awesome loan to the MIM. I highly recommend this place if you are ever in the Valley of the Sun. You can easily spend two days here.
