I've posted my banjo twice and it still doesn't appear in the auction.

Hi, Kendall - I think you forgot to put a title on your auction, Kendall. I titled it - hope you like what I put. Gee, I wish I could play banjo. I've had a crush for years on a coupla banjo-laying women...

I want to change the time to a month.

Remember guys, I turned down $1600.00. This is not just any old banjo.

Joe, it's never too late to learn something new. You are not an old dog, you know.

I took an old banjo uke to the Getaway it was a very old one, the original head was made of animal skin; Mammoth, I believe.

It went for $40.00.

Dear Mr. Kendle,

I suggest, for reaching optimum price, you offer it to a broader community than MC.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

One third of MC are guests, perhaps, e-bay or craig list will help bring you top dollar

You are right, but I just want to let friends know it's available. I doubt that many folkies have that much scratch to play with.
Thanks for the tip, we can't both be wrong.

I must remove the banjo from the auction. It fell over and is damaged.
DAMN!!!

What a shame, Kendall.

It can be repaired, but it is no longer the pristine vintage Vega it was, so I won't be offering it again.

I thought you meant the Auction!

Kendall, you're probably aware of this but the price you were asking on that Vega TB is well below what a 20's model goes for (depending on inlay style, of course) and even for instruments that have had a lot of work or conversion from tenor or plectrum.

The good folks at Woodsound can help with correct repairs and pricing, Kendall. Let me know if I can help with transport.
