A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
There's an auction in Ireland tomorrow that's got a Riley-Baker patent zither banjo in it, guide price £252 - £288. That's the one with the all-aluminium pot and neck (the fingerboard is wood). Here are some good pictures of another example from somebody's blog: http://ning.it/jjyOmt
The auction thing is kind of interesting. You can sign up online, watch in realtime and bid. Unfortunately, you have to make arrangements for somebody to pick things up and ship them (and fast -- auction houses don't like things hanging around). Sadly, that ruins the economy of the thing right there.
Pity. I've seen a few really interesting banjos sell around the area. Here's the link to this one: http://ning.it/iKtsse
