New banjo a work in progress (slow progress)

Posted by bowfinger on Monday, July 20, 2009

I sent the '49 reissue back to the owner (brother) to play.  I've been working on the "new" neck.  I put side position marker dots in.  I also fixed some divots in the headstock around the tuner holes.  I also shouldn't have tried to fix a mark on the back of the headstock cause now I have to re-color which looks like a pain since I don't really know what color was used on this.  It looks orange with a bit of brown to me.   I want to get that fixed before I send it off to get the neck re-fit.

I've been thinking about a maple resonator instead of mahohany.  I've seen discussions about the resonator not making any difference to the sound of a banjo. So I don't know.  We'll see.  I'll post pics when I get some.
