Questions about a zyther/banjo

Hi everyone, first a big THANK YOU to this website host for approving my request to becomd a member.

Recently, I bought this zyther/banjo from an estate sale. It is alleged to be from 1900. I do not know the maker and is in a desperate need of repair that I am willing to do. It previous owner did a bad job on it. I would love to share pictures of it before I took it apart and afterwards.

If anyone could help me to upload these picture I would deeply appreciated.

Dance Of The Skeletons..1901..Thomas Sylvester Allen.

This was a tricky tune to arrange for banjo but I'm pleased with the result. It's typical of other dance macabre 'Halloween' type compositions. The piano score was in F/Dmin, I've arranged it in G/Emin as it works better on the banjo. My suggested…See More
