Here is Joe's website:

He has more than one model. Mine is the "Hambone."

May 2006 issue of Banjo Newsletter has my review of the Joe Masel cigar box banjo that Bob bought me for my birthday. They also have a s short (about 30 second) MP3 up so you can hear the voice of this very fun banjo. :)

Here are some photos from the Florida Archives showing early Florida cigar box banjos.  These probably had three strings and didn't look any different than cigar box guitars--but they are labeled as "banjos" in the historical notes. :)

Notice how I am not historically accurate--looks like you are supposed to play the cigar box banjo barefooted.
