New Arrival!

Posted by skoobee on Friday, November 13, 2009

Well you couldn't write it really!

Father in law goes to visit relatives up country, and lo and behold, they turned up another of their fathers banjo's in the loft!

This one is definately a Plectrum Banjo though, no odd length necks this time!

It's a Clifford Essex Regal , 1920-1936 or thereabouts.

The Nickel plate isn't in great shape, and the varnish is in need of restoration, but....

add a little TLC, some strings, a grover bridge, and a Remo Fibreskin Head and...

Lovely!  Almost enough to make me give up 5-string (yeah right!)

 

Lovely tone, and great looking!  Nice find pops!  Reckon I'll put some Pictures on here once I manage to prise it back from the father-in-law who seems to have discovered the plectrum banjo as his instrument of choice!
