There's probably no good way to I'd this, it's a mass produced entry level instrument likely from Asia 70s to 90s. These don't hold any real value.

Generic Asian guitar-banjo. No value beyond what similar are bringing on ebay

You could try taking the resonator off and seeing if there's anything marked on the inside of the rim. But I'd guess Kyle is right and what you find won't be very enlightening.

No doubt it's a generic Asian guitar-banjo, and the name, if it has one, is pretty meaningless because these were made under various names for various companies. It's not worth much monetarily, but might be very enjoyable to learn on if it's set up decently.

I have this same instrument , labeled "Johnson" . If you search for that name, you may find the period they were on the market, unlabeled or w/ some other generic name.
