"So, it's now in playable condition. It's pretty to look at (I just love that headstock!) but probably not very good. I don't have much Zb experience and I don't have my Windsor Zb at home at the moment to compare. I'll post…"

W.E Temlett Zither-Banjo

Hi all,I got myself a "new" zither-banjo from eBay, pretty cheap, and it arrived today. It all looks good, except for a few things.First up, two of the tuners are missing the knob. So I'm looking for a replacment (I don't think I will be able to repair it...). Does anyone happen to have a spare set for a W.E Temlett zither (see pics)? When removing the tuners it looks to me as though the tuners on it was not the original. Looks as though it at some point had six single tuners. Could that be? I…See More
