Thread Name: A fine time was had at Bent's Old Fort
Subject: RE: A fine time was had at Bent's Old Fort
You guys are talking banjos-- did you see the reproduction banjo that was in the fort? It is in the bookeepers room. It is a 5string banjo just like the one in the W.S.Mount painting, but it, like the painting, is not a takhead but a 6 hook tension head. If you missed it, YOU MISSED IT. It is a way cool banjo. Pitty that they don't play it! I would love to get my hands on one, does anyone know who made the one at the fort?
