I recently took a hit on a banjo purchased from Bill's Music in Maryland. (Ebay user ID: billsmusic) The photos , strategically provided to keep undisclosed damage hidden, did not show obvious, extensive damage to the interior of the banjo. Contacted the seller who claimed all sales were "final with no returns". Not the kind of folks I want to do business with again.
"Steve, The case arrived today, it's just what I wanted. Please and thank you and may the Lord bless you... Lou. "
"I'm SORRY I haven't contacted you until now; my computer BLEW up!! The case I bought from you was absolutely perfect!!! It fits my old SS Stewart banjolin like a glove. It was even better than you described at a very fair price. Thank you for your excellent service....Kay"
"Just received the case. Thank you very much. It's the perfect length. I just need to trim down the support a little for a 6 string neck and I'll fix the damaged end while I'm at it..but the look is perfect. Thanks Again...Chip" "
