do it yourself-er

Monday, September 24, 2012

I finally broke down and scooped my goodtimes neck.  Its not the prettiest scoop, in fact i think i may have taken it up to far. oh well, I'll have to fill in the hole where the fret inlay was later.  Anyway, it works and i'm glad i did it.  When i first got a banjo i was scared to tweak anything.  Now having done a few modifications, I have a new appreciation for a banjos set up and construction. 

  i used a $7 1/2" wood rasp and some sand paper from lowes.  When i finished my arms were killing, and it was hard to enjoy my work.  It's taking a little getting use to but i like playing over the neck.  I think this concludes my banjo modifications....at least until its time to get a new head.
