Character man character....the stories these things could tell.
Old music on old banjos.......why not? The supply of great old banjos is out there; they are so much fun to hunt, find, and bring into captivity to enjoy.

When you separate these parts ... individually, they don't look like much.

But they fit with each other like hand-and-glove. No surprise, I guess they have been together for almost 150 years.

When you get the neck back on this jewel, bo doubt it will sound fantastic.

There is something special and grungy with an old pot like that and I like it. A rim like this requires an authentic head like this one. David E.
