Many of you, over 40, may have fond memories of the "pickin' sessions" we all enjoyed at The Banjo Shop before the retail aspect of the business shifted over to our retail store -- Mountain Music in 1981.
During the fall of 1999 we hired Jim Brownell to gut the old building and do a complete renovation of the structure. We added a paved drive way and a small porch, but the most exotic feature of the project turned out to be new interior walls -- Solid Mahogany! Just like your old D-18! Our plan was to make the walls of "tone wood" in hopes that we would all be inspired to become more proficient pickers!
