There's a tiny crack developed in the nut of my number two banjo that is having very weird effects on the tuning. Can someone recommend the nearest place to Harrisburg PA that I could get it fixed? I hesitate to just consult the yellow pages for a good five-string banjo (it's a converted Orpheum #1).

Much obliged.

There is a luthier in Bucks County at an instrument store who did some work on a guitar of Dick's - I'll ask him for details.

Also Sunhearth Dulcimers in Roaring Springs PA on route 220 due west of Harrisburg - they make several instruments - I don't know if they work on banjos.

There's a very good shop several hours north. Yale's, in Sayre: http://www.yalesmusic.com/

Good guys who also play/lead bluegrass bands, have done many great repairs for us.

I sometimes travel from up here to H'burg. PM if interested in ferrying/facilitating repair.

Thanks, all. There are apparently a couple of guitar repair places worth trying fairly close to where I am - what's needed is a new nut.

If that doesn't work out, Susan, I may take you up on that, thanks!

It looks like I've found somewhere local, after a tip from a banjo player in DC - the owner/repair guy is a buddy of Garnet Rogers, so how bad can he be, right? :)
