St Louis Show Pictures

Hello All . I recently went to a guitar / luthier gathering in St.Louis Mo. There were a approx 20 people who showed up and brought allot of beautiful work to be looked at and played. One piece I found rather interesting was built by a young man who is a native of St.Louis named Bryan Bear.

Brian wanted to learn how to play the banjo and at the same time wanted to keep his wife and baby happy. So his solution was to build a solid wood topped banjo . Keeping the Banjo sound , but a tad quieter . He is able to practice his pickin and grinning now without the wife being upset .

I was very impressed at his skills as a woodworker and wanted to share them with you in this post.

Please enjoy the pics of the skilled Luthier Bryan Bear .
