Frankenstein Banjo 

Posted 6/22/2007 1:32:49 AM

This is a banjo that has gone through many incarnations in the past 30 years. There is very little of the original instrument left. I have loaned it indefinitely to my niece, Stephanie.

Reminds me a little of my old banjo which I christened The Mutt. The neck and aluminum archtop pot are about all that's left original on that pup, and I think the neck is going to be replaced in the not so distant future. Frankie there looks like it might have some old Stew Mac star inlays (The Mutt was originally a Stew Mac kit).

Much better to lend it to a niece than to sell it. I'm there are alot of memories that are connected to that old banjo!

I bought the inlays at Ed's Music Wrkshop in Peterborough, but he may well have bought them from Stew-Mac.  My first attempt at inlay was the lyre on the headstock.  It's not a bad job if you squint a bit when you look at it.
