    OK, you had a problem with the time difference. My last piece of advice, let it go.

    It is interesting to see how some people get eaten up, by what is essentially trivia. Life's too short to drink bad wine.

    This is just so not needed. We get it, you don't like the guy, move on with your life.

    Yes I understand Dennis. I'll probably do some sort of conversion some day. Best to stick with what you a comfortable with. If I had a machine shop I would have no qualms myself but the tooling costs are beyond where I care to go. Maybe a Keech or a Sandstrom design Sometime? You know where I live.

    If you should ever build a Whyte Laydie No 2 Style Banjolele, I will buy it from you. - Catastrophes not withstanding. Gold Tone has available an 8" Fairbanks Whyte Laydie Style Tone Ring. The Whyte Laydie is unusual in that No metal passes through the Wooden Pot. Whyte refers to the use of Maple Neck and Pot. If this is of any interest please contact me.

    Stumbled onto finding your Southern Cross Banjo Uke and I really like the looks of it. I have been searching for one. When will you roll your next one out? And I could probably find some spare cash!
