A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
I buyed this zyther banjo on e_bay 8 years ago ; beautiful but unfortunatly the seller was a liar and the banjo was totally unplayable because of an up_bow ; i think the mahogany neck was not well seasoned and was strong
on the bad way , not inwards as one would expect .
I asked éric ‘ s but it was a big work to do a fine job and i hanged the zyther on the wall ; you can see it on some of my vidéos . It is original because the reso is a lonely ( ! ) piece of walnut reading " june 1905 "
Recently i had the idea to fix it myself ; it was simple to do without de_gluing anything but it ‘s not an usual thing ; so be discret and don ‘t tell it to any body .. i have see the neck was curved in just one point and straight_correct between the nut and fret 11 ; and so from fret 11 to the up_neck ; I just inlayed a lil ‘ piece of mahogany wood . The pictures speaks themselves . I have just to do a few French varnish on the back of the neck and i am gonna start to play it ; Thanks to Rob and his zyther videos back to the zyther Bj
