Thanks, Rob.  I should go try to get a couple more of those boxes.  I like them too.

Thanks, Bob.   It's pretty simple doing the short string that way.

That is a nice looking box banjo Unc J. Neat job with the 5th string too!  Weather is quite mild and breezy in my neck of the woods at the moment.

I used one of these boxes on my last build. It’s made perfectly for an acoustic instrument.

Thanks, Doug.

Lookin’ good Uncle John! You are getting the maximum mileage out your fret purchases. I’m waiting for the demo video. Play us a song!

Thanks, Jerry.  My banjo playing is nothing to brag about.  I can chord and strum or kind of do finger style.  I love claw hammer style, but my brain and fingers disconnect when I try to do it.

That is neat. Can't wait to hear it.
