Hello , I recently purchased this Iida banjo and I didnt notice when I removed the strings how they went through the bridge holes.
Does this look correct?
Thanks

No. The holes are designed to accept ball end strings. When using loop end strings just put the loops on the hooks as shown, run the strings across the tailpiece and under the bar in the front. The first and fifth strings go under the outside edges and the other three go through the middle.

Those holes are for securing ball-end strings. You needn't pass loop-end strings through them.

That is not the bridge, it is the tailpiece. The strings dip under toward the end.
