"Par, I added the video to the discussion for you. It sounds pretty good to me. I am surprised that without frets you can get it to sound in tune at all! I am sure that I couldn't play in tune without a LOT of practice. I think I will stick to…"

"@Trapdoor: I can really recomend doing it, and not all to difficult, if you have the tools. @Ian: "How does it sound further up the neck?" Out of tune! :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVHu3jgcwbU"

"What a delight! It sounds excellent, very much like any other well-built minstrel-style banjo. Gee, and I thought my Stewart Cello-Banjo was big at 16"... I have a bodhran lying in the back of my closet somewhere. I have similar designs on…"

"What an amazing sound! The bass, as expected, is superb.  It would be ideal for me (and maybe Jody?) as it would fit round my rather large belly ;-)) It is good to see that we Banjophiles will go to great lengths go get "just one…"
