That is beautiful. What happened during conversion?

what do you mean - what happened? The conversion neck was made for 5 string from a tenor. The neck was made to replicate the tenor in detail.

I am intrigued. How many frets does the neck have? It looks a great banjo to play and to listen to!

It has 22 frets Kester. It has great tone. The tail piece was made by the guy who owned it. He worked in a factory machine shop at the time. The other unknown resonator came with it as it was a tenor. I will be near a tsumura book in the morning maybe find more. No serials numbers anywhere?

I am so intrigued by your banjo. It is a treasure. I would love to read a blog about it. Its history and conversion, even hear it being played.
