Killer back on the street

This month's issue of Acoustic Guitar magazine includes a full account by Dana Bourgeois of Bourgeois Guitars of how the 1995 Bourgeois Slope D owned by flatpicking ace Bryan Sutton, and affectionately (affectionately?) known as 'The Banjo Killer', was carefully restored after being damaged by the Nashville flood of 2010.

The whole gripping story can also be read online. In response to the news, a representative of the banjo community said: 'If it comes round here, we're ready for it.'

I have indeed read about the restoration of the ''Banjo Killer '' (sorry Richard, that must be hard for you to read !! ) and it made great reading. The Bourgeois BK is a very special and iconic guitar and it was great to see it restored to its former glory. It was of particular interest to me as I own a ''Brother '' of the Bourgeois Banjo killer, a Slope shouldered dreadnought. A great read to be sure. Vinny Baker.
