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.


If you do not know what you are buying or have questions please ask them in advance of your purchase. I will gladly answer questions and assure you I will do so in an honest and forthright manner. I always make an honest attempt to describe items as I would like to have them described for me with full disclosure of any relevant known issues. Last thing in the world that I need is drama over a banjo part...


  • "hello i have a received my banjo neck ,very good thank you very much...laurent"

  • "hello ...the banjo neck arrived today in the mail....I love it...thanks so much...jake"

  • "Received the neck today! Fabulous..just what I wanted. I'll throw up a video on youtube when I get her done and give you full props in my write up. Great service, I really appreciate it. I'll be making the wolves howl in the Yukon with my gas can tenor banjo when it's done- Greg"



    Always willing to consider interesting trades...like to find an Eastman Whyte Laydie neck or comparable.... Questions about any of the listed items....email or text 617-302-6682.
