I find some Ebay listing's quite thought provoking.

I was looking at that last night. The description has some interesting points. I kinda spent my school maths lessons doing things other than learning, but I think this 5 string has 7 strings? And, I wonder if 'the country's leading banjo workshop' gave him an estimate of value?

"Country's leading banjo workshop" is an odd statement.

In the US that would be Derring or Gold Tone, two companies that I would NEVER send an antique banjo for work.

I assume he is referring to either Eagle Music or Andy Banjo. Considering the sellers location, and the wording he uses (workshop) I would guess at Andy Banjo.

My guess in John Alvey Turner. I don't think Andy Banjo have been doing this sort of work recently and Glen has closed the business.

Closed permanently or until an upturn? I never purchased anything from them but I did email them regarding specs of second hand Graftons and got a very helpful and complete reply. And it was where my banjo was originally put together.

From the myriad of UK banjo workshops it's hard to chose the "leading" one.

My google search, once you get past the group lesson type of workshop, returns only Eagle music on the first page of results...

Thanks. A difficult market to be in at the moment.

That's my point.
