Do you have an old banjo
being used as a wall hanging or moldering away in the
attic? Maybe you bought it to fix up but never got around
to it. Or maybe you found out that it would be prohibitively
expensive to have it repaired at a music shop. Of course,
you do! We all have banjos like this lying around not
doing anyone any good. Send us pictures of your banjo
(details at the end of the article), and win a chance
to have it lovingly restored to playable condition by
banjo rehabilitator Tim Smith!

Below are before and after pictures of a banjo that Tim
Smith rescued and restored to playable condition.
