A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
I was just about to ask the same question. It appears to be set up as a guitar. The mismatch of woods between the pot and neck suggests an assemblage of random parts. The perch pole seems to be yet another kind of wood. The inlay at the first fret does not suggest Clifford Essex.
The inlay at the first fret looks like Cammeyer.....
It does rather look a bit "Frankenbanjo" I must admit
Perchpole looks OK - but what is it from?
I agree - the hoop and perchpole certainly look OK - but the neck? Could be off a Cammeyer.........
But then again it could be off quite a few others too. Will probably remain a mystery. Tom
Frankenbanjo ..;? ? , means hybrid ?
Yes Marc, mixture of frankenstein and banjo.............
It has been sold for £320
