Little Bear Banjo Hospital: Back On The Job, and Focused on TEACHING CLAWHAMMER BANJO IN STAUNTON, VA
Little Bear Banjo Hospital is reorganized, slimmed down, focused and ready to do business again. Taking new "patients," local only, and ready to teach clawhammer banjo once more, this time in our new location, Staunton, VA, in the embrace of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are still planning and designing a new workshop, but for now a modest two table operating room has been set up in the basement of our new cabin cottage near Augusta Avenue and Grasty, on Overlook Road, which indeed overlooks this great city and its surrounding mountain tops. LBBH repairs traumatic neck stress and dramatic peghead breaks. We can mount a new skinhead, refinish a neck and pot using old tried and true tung and oil finishing techniques. We can rejuvenate spun over pots and oxidized hardware. LBBH can do basic setup, vintage case repair, fret repair, fretless fingerboard replacement, customized wooden tailpiece carving, upgrading peghead and fifth string tuners, among other things. Looking forward to doing business locally as your one stop vintage banjo repair and rejuvenation spa. Thanks.
