Tony Rees Help Needed - guitarist keeps buying more guitars (103* d) RE: Help Needed - guitarist keeps buying more guitars 02 Aug 19

And if you think a guitar addiction is bad, how about a banjo one? This quote is lifted from a 2003 mudcat post in another thread from Charley Noble...

HOSEA EASTON, of Melbourne, Australia, July 13th, 1886:

My banjos, eight in number, arrived here three weeks ago perfectly safe and sound, and I have thoroughly tested every one of them. I find to my satisfaction that there is nothing in the shape of banjos in Australia to approach them. You deserve the name, "King Banjo Maker," and as you stated in your letter, the two large banjos are the finest ever seen in the colonies...I have been playing one of the large ones with a full orchestra, and the banjo was heard above the orchestra outside the theatre doors.(!)

Cheers - Tony
