Red Fox headstock binding

From Jason Skinner on 7/19/2020 6:01:46 PM

Have you guys ever seen binding like this?

The photo in the second link looks like there is a curly maple veneer over a white one between it and the peghead. It is definitely not a stock situation. Geoff

Thanks Geoff. I'll check it out tonight and let you know what's going with it.

Pretty sure it's pinstriping tape. You can see the tape pulling away in a couple of places. Weird. But I'm going to look at it tonight. Then I can find out what is happening there. Hopefully it is just tape and can just be pulled off.

I have other banjos having multi layered veneers. I have a stained curly maple neck with a thin layer of white holly beneath the ebony fret board & peg head. It had a 45º champfer around the edge giving it the appearance of a bound peg head. I think the builder said the stain was mixed with the lacquer & he had to mask the holly. hopefully what you are about to peel off will reveal a secret underneath.
