Rob’s February Blog

Hi from Bishline Banjos!

Be looking for us Feb.17-19 at the Mid Winter Bluegrass Festival at the Northglenn Ramada Plaza in Denver.

We’re looking forward to seeing a lot of friends there and doing a lot of jamming.
Hopefully Flat picker Randy McSpadden will come by and pick a few tunes and our friend Dan Nieto will be doing some picking at the booth with me and Dave.

We’ll have several banjos with us including: CF–5, Patriot, Cimarron, Clermont
and some customs. I hope you’ll stop by the booth and say hi.

We’ve made some updates to our web site recently including a tag lick that I think you’ll find helpful in your playing. It’s under the “Tabs and Tips” tab in the video section of the web site. You can download the tab there as well.

In the custom section you’ll see a couple of banjos we recently completed.
The Midnight Moon was custom built for Jim Lesure in Edgewater, Maryland.
It features extensive marquetry inlay in the resonator, gold tuners, capo and hooks,
powder-coated hardware and a Koa armrest.

We also added a custom open back built for John Bullard in Kentucky.
It has some custom marquetry inlays of navy tattoos. Banjo is flame maple with a tobacco stain and a laminated neck. The dowel rod is a new design for us and very functional. John also posted some cool videos playing his banjo on you tube.

Back to work for me…We’re super busy building banjos and Maderas right now!

Thanks and Happy Pickin!
