I was watching A Night In The Ozarks and enjoying it immensely but saddened that some of our heroes are not still with us. I don't know how else to say it, but Doug Dillard's banjo was so Doug Dillard - the sound, the look. all so uniquely tied to him.
Does anyone know what has happened to his banjo? I hope it is in a good place where all can see. IMO no one else could do it justice.
Other than a wife or kid id assume rodney has it good question you might contact rodney for the answer

The Dillards have a very active Facebook page. Probably run by Rodney. Easy enough to like or follow that page and post a question there.
back about 20 years ago , I met Vic Jordan in Nashville , one day we had a breakfast at Shoneys and he invited me to his apartment , while I was there he got on the phone , and called someone , next thing you know , few minutes later Doug was at the door , so there I was sitting in the kitchen with Vic and Doug going through some old photo albums of Vic’s ,,, they also set up and adjusted my banjo , and Vic gave me couple sets of Gibson banjo strings … that was before cell phones and selfies , so I don’t have any pictures, but memories on that day will be with me for the rest of my life … just a little story I wanted to share with a fans of Doug Dillard , he was a very nice guy, and so was Vic ...
