If we leave it overnight with my C 1900 fretted Temlett 7 string , do you think they might breed a couple of Ukes ??

Damn, I knew Dan Milner was an old fart, but I had no idea he had been around that long...... wait .....which century?

All kidding aside, you might want to PM Liam's Brother. His name is Dan Milner, and the coincidence is striking. He might be able to help you.

All the best,

Mick

Yes. That's my banjo alright. It was stolen from underneath my foot at Snow Hill Station in Birmingham in 1961 while I was waiting for a train to Crewe. Thank God you've found it.

If that's right it has come a long way it was bought in an auction in Driffield by the best uke players over here East yorkshire about 12 years ago. that was the first time that I saw it.it has taken me all that time to get him to part with it, it cost me one old arch top and a flat top in exchange.I was just about to get it converted into a 5 string by Dave Stacey. Liams Brother give me a pm cheers Oombanjo

Possession of stolen property is a serious crime in this country.

Kendall's wit is best taken with fluids, and yet he delivers the payoff with setup most implicit.
