An experimental banjo I’ve been wanting to build for a couple years. I got the idea from the Gold Tone OT-10 banjo and after building a couple gourd banjos, I wondered how the same concept (five double course strings) would work for one. 25” scale one-piece curly walnut neck with white/gold flake Formica peghead overlay and heel cap. Currently set up with the first, second, and fifth strings tuned in unison, and the third and fourth string pairs tuned in octaves, using an extra fifth string for the third and a second for the fourth high octave strings, similar to how a 12-string guitar would be strung. Tunings would essentially be ddaAdDF#F#AA (dADF#A) or ddgGdDGGAA (dGDGA).
