Restoring Great Grandfather's Banjo

Posted by bims on Friday, April 24, 2009

Well maybe restoring is not the correct words but definitely rescuing it.  This was discovered in a cousin's attic after being thought, by the entire family, that it was gone.  I have researched and found out it was a Stromberg-Voisinet, predecessor to the Kay instrument company.  Probably bought through Montgomery Ward Catalog.  Not worth much as to a collector but priceless to me.

I wanted to keep the original character but I worked the wood and the metal to clean the rust and gunk, cleaned up what needed cleaning, replaced what needed replacing and have it working and playing great again.  Take a look at the pictures in my photo album.  I'll post a video of it this weekend.
