Dan Gellert and Reed Martin at the Midwest Banjo Camp, June, 2005. Dan is playing his replica of  Reed Martin's minstrel banjo.  Reed is playing the original.  

So Dan ended up with the banjo. I delivered it to him at Banjo Camp North and he paid me exactly what I paid you. He was supposed to send you back the can opener tailpiece. If you have not received it, give him a call to remind him..... Dan also had a 3-long strings & one short string gourd banjo which  he played at Midwest Banjo Camp. Both your banjo and the gourd got a workout as Dan was really flying all weekend. One workshop after another, plus concerts and demonstrations. Your name was mentioned a lot and we tried to send you lots of banjo enthusiasts...............
The banjo is loved and played by a master......... All the best........Reed Martin
