"I like them a whole lot. I do think the ones that are a little less cluttered work better visually. I am wondering if you could print on both the front and back. Put the bolder font on the front and pay close attention to composition. Not just the…"

Thanks Matthew. I never go into it with any expectations since I'm sort of new to banjo and a lot of folks there have been playing a long time. It's just great to socialize and jam with folks that I've listened to and learned from in the last few years.

Hi, Matt. Sorry I didn't reply to your question about my banjo earlier. I haven't been on in a while. Anyway, it sounds good. Not quite as "plunky" as a normal banjo, but it's got a nice twang to it. A later addition that's not in the pictures is a small strip of rubber shelf matting under the bridge. It deadens a little bit of the sustain, and pushes it a bit from guitar to banjo territory. Not a huge difference, and not really necessary, but it's what I did. The toothpick frets are holding up ok, mostly because I never play it. But all of my builds have toothpick frets, and none of them have any wear that's detrimental to playability. The eyebolts are so-so on this particular build, because they don't hold their tuning, but that's due to poor drill bit choice. On most of my other builds, they hold their tuning very well (most, because I used the same drill bit on another one, and have the same problem).
