Thanks for the welcome! I live in Bellefonte, PA (10 mi. NE of State College - home of Penn State). I’m not what one would call an accomplished instrumentalist. Am a self-taught “strummer” (read “chords mostly”) of ukuleles, guitars and banjos.
I’ve recently been bitten by the antique bug and am very interested in vintage and antique guitars and banjos. Consequently, I’m gradually learning how to do some repair and refurbishing when necessary which is at once both very frustrating and very rewarding!
I have a booth at a nearby antique co-op which I stock with vintage and antique instruments as well as non-electric wall & mantle clocks. Additionally I’m into antique & vintage oil lamps.
Just celebrated my 80th birthday. I busy as hell, learning an awful lot (including history), and having a wonderful time!!!
