David Wade replied to IAN SALTER's discussion Date of my flush fret?
"Strangley enough I've seen a neck very similar to this one quite recently - it had been fretted with some strange looking pieces of copper. It had the same design of peghead, no fingerboard and a spoon heel - I'd put it early '70s/80s."

Thanks Ian - I hope you are enjoying learning classic banjo.  Are you new to playing the banjo or have you migrated over from another style of banjo playing? Let me know if I can be of any help.
