    Yep! I spent a ton of time on that site before I discovered this one...

    I, too, own a banjo. I’ve even played it in public a couple of times.

    But, I don’t play it at home except when my wife’s out of the house...

    Re: Flatirons - festival, performer, artist, signature

    I’m pretty sure they didn’t move to China until after 2003 (and maybe closer to 2007?), so the one you’re looking at should be the real deal. Anyone sign the label?

    The mandolin in the link is a very good mandolin, indeed. See it’s “sale pending;” you bite? If so, I can’t imagine you being disappointed with that one!!
