Following the sad death of Derek Hall (Kendal) his amazing collection of guitars and banjos will be put up for auction. If probate goes through smoothly the likely date will be 9th March and the auctioneers are www.1818auctioneers.co.uk at Crooklands near Kendal.
Over the years I built six high grade Fairbanks and Vega reproduction banjos for Derek featuring ornate inlays and floral carving on the neck heel. I can provide details and photographs of these instruments and can be contacted at:
