Very nice!  Stewart Princesses have 10" heads?

Jim, yes, the American Princess models all have the smaller 10" heads and a shorter neck (although still standard scale).

Darius, the resonator is a ca. 1900 nickle plated brass spin-on hubcap resonator.  They were available as banjo accessories from a number of manufacturers from the late 1800s to the early 1900s.  I got this one on eBay.

Hi Annie,

Yes, that was an Intellitouch tuner there mounted on the rim, and yes it worked nicely. I've recently moved to a simpler, more compact (and less expensive) tuner mounted there and am equally happy with it. My four main playing banjos all have electronic tuners mounted directly on their rims, so I don't have to chase around looking for a tuner when I need it. It's pretty handy.

Most of the electronic tuners have a clip mounted to them with a screw-and-hinge mechanism. I remove the screw, take off the clip, put the screw back with a thick hair-band anchored to it. That hair band then becomes the mounting system for the tuner, running it underneath a couple of hooks on the banjo rim.
