David, in the beginning I intended a quick repair for a friend. This was related to a loose joint between the neck and the
dowel stick. Inspections showed more upsets created by people doing things totally incorrect and damaging. As a result
I was given the instrument. Repairs involve a new dowel stick, new fingerboard, new bridge and a new nut. Repairs are done as and when and perhaps the most interesting part is the bridge - curved feet are top of the list, next to be considered is using 2,3 or 4 legs. Either way the bridge will be topped by a fret wire ridge using DHP 24 wire.

Regards dave

Yes Tom, I enjoy playing tenor banjo, mandolin banjo and mandolin. Just for my own fun.

Regards dave
We have a big Bluegrass festival around here every year, and there are a number of good players here. One is a teen ager who is on mandolin and really terrific. A couple of years ago we did a training in Nashville and one of the staff was a fiddler. She played a couple of tunes for us and she was amazing, fast, accurate rendition of Foggy Mountain Breakdown even Earl Scruggs would applaud. :laugh2:

Hi Tom thanks for your note. You are very lucky to have a large Blue Grass interest in your area - keep it up. Are there any internet uploads regarding the festival?

Regards dave
@pinehunter It's called the Route 66 Bluegrass Festival in Victorville, CA, at the fairgrounds. Features local and regional groups. Attached is a youtube video or two of the performers last year. It will be over the Father's day weekend this year. Great fun! If you want to come, fly in to the Ontario (ONT) airport and head over the I-15, up the Cajon Pass and drive to the Roy Rogers exit, the fairgrounds is on 7th street. Hotels in the area are not expensive. Don't know the admission price.
And another...
Turns out there's a channel devoted to the festival!
Tom
