We’ll, I’ve finished the acoustic guitar and vocal parts for song five, for the new album, and it’s most definitely calling for some banjo now. I wound up with this one after I bought a Fender resonator a while back, from Pro Music in Fairbanks, Alaska. It sounded great at first, but after a while the neck started to separate from the body — which is pretty much always a bad thing. When I contacted Fender about it, they told me they had discontinued that model resonator and they very graciously offered to replace it with any other Fender acoustic instrument of my choosing. I needed a banjo at the time, so I asked if it could be this one for the trade. I shipped the resonator to them (they said they were going to shred it), and they sent me this sweet banjo. I’ve had it for a number of years now and it’s a really great instrument. I’m getting set up to use it to track some banjo for song five today, and still feeling the Fender love.
