Perhaps everyone who has original Bacon Silver Bell banjos (and not fake or upgraded) have decided to keep them as the prices are going down as Baby Boomers continue to downsize or pass?

Maybe they are hoping that there will be another Shakey's Pizza/ Your Father's Mustache fad that will eventually raise prices? 


I think you nailed it right there... I am a BB and am downsizing myself, but the market is so soft it's hard to get a decent price for a treasure

Seemed if it was starred, it's OK.

Thanks.

OldNavyGuy Just because we didn't happen to catch one starred word doesn't mean it's okay for you to do the same. You should have enough of a vocabulary to state what you think without resorting to curse words that have to be starred out. It IS against the rules.

Rule #2 of the guidelines and rules says as follows: Profanity or Racial/Religious Slurs: Keep in mind that these forums are visited by people of all ages and backgrounds. Besides.. a foul mouth doesn't impress anyone.

So, you aren't impressing anyone with starred words and it's not okay.

Really too bad you mods can't come up with some sort of "anti-stupidity filter." With such a feature in place, this (and many other threads) would have never happened.

The moderator(s) need to be cognizant of the disparaging and agism remarks that are still on this thread. May have been an oversight.

I also wonder why a forum named playing advice tolerates a post by a trader who is solely interested in sales. What is this post even doing here?

A dose of Twain each day could possibly make the world a less crazy place.

Mike,
Here's another one for you that seems appropriate:

Who'd've thunk that a shortfall of banjos for sale would ever be the cause of incandescent rage? Wow.

I'd hate to be the mole that burrowed his lawn. laugh

Can't play if there's nothing worth playing. 
 

Also, I buy as well.

Enough already. You were warned to be civil. Locked.

Looks like Jack got the last word after all.... managed to post one more time before I could lock it.  Oh, well, we won't hear from him for a while.
