Here is an interesting and ultimately well executed artifact from the mid 1970s, when it seemed like most banjos had an eagle on it either in name (Stu-Mac kits) or in image (thousands of cheap Japanese banjos, bicentennial models of varying qualities). I was told this maple resonator was made by Kansas City builder and repairman Bob George. I was also told that Hallmark Greeting Card artist Ron Raymer was responsible for the very nicely done patriotic bicentennial carvings (look up Mr. Raymer’s paintings if you’re into that sort of thing. He was an excellent artist in that medium as well.)
This resonator is unfinished, has no binding, and no cut for the heel. However, this has potential to be a very nice addition to a banjo build at a fraction of what it would cost to have a artist as talented as Mr. Raymer carve it.
Thanks for looking and feel free to reach out with any questions.
