Hi folks,
I'm selling upwards of 50 banjos over the next few months as part of getting divorced. I'll also be selling a bunch of nice parts, cases, necks, etc. Anyway, I thought I'd start a thread in case people had questions, etc. I'm listed two of the three tenors I own. I'll be listing a few resonators and then lots more openbacks. I am always open to trades and especially to cash offers. All of my banjos (unless otherwise described) are set up to play. I've made videos of most and will be posting those as soon as I can. Many thanks for taking a look!

Interesting thread -

On the human-to-human side, divorce is never easy, and I hope you and your soon-to-be Ex manage to part company with as little bloodshed (I hope I'm speaking figuratively here,) as possible, on both sides...

Regarding banjos:

BHO sends a lot of 'Classified' notifications; yours have made interesting reading. While I envision myself as a non-spending 'lurk-er', you just never know when one of those banjos might grab the old heartstrings and raid my wallet.

I suspect there will be some interesting information for Banjophiles on this thread in the near future.

Good luck getting into your next phase...

As the motivation for these listings is definitely sales, please come at me with offers (hopefully reasonable) as I'd love move them to new loving homes.

Thank goodness you posted that.  For a bit I thought you were selling HER banjos!

Good luck with the sales and with your life moving forward.

I am sorry for the reason that you have to part with your banjos. Good luck with the outcome of all of this.

I sent you a PM for when you get a chance to check it out.

First of all, I know how tough something like this is. My first banjo was purchased after the divorce to give me something to do to avoid dating again for awhile. I am looking for a reasonably price five string neck to put on and old slingerland pot I have. Please let me know if you have anything like that. Thanks, Greg
