Once again we have a locally sourced Ian Pattison Whyte Laydie style open back banjo in Black Walnut from Pattison Stringed Instruments in Guelph, Ontario. The original Whyte Laydie banjos were made by A C Fairbanks starting around 1901 and ending in 1904 when the Fairbanks shop was destroyed in a fire, and the Vega company took over production. This lovely Pattison Whyte Laydie banjo features a Whyte Laydie tone ring by Rickert from Aurora, Ontario and a Renaissance head.

The Seagull S6 Original is a small revamp of the award winning Seagull S6, first introduced in 1982 and which has become the flagship model for the Seagull line which features excellent quality and value.   The Seagull line, like Art and Lutherie and Simon & Patrick, are all products of the Godin companies based in southern Quebec, Canada.

⚌Reduced‼ William Laskin 7 String Acoustic Guitar, 1992

William Laskin is very well known for the creativity and quality of his inlay work. Here, a stag or buck – a male deer with antlers is depicted between frets 11 and 18, in a mixture of engraved woods and, it appears, ivory for the antlers. This guitar is old enough that small amounts of ivory were still used, and here appears in the nut, saddle, sliding nut components, and the inlaid antlers.
