This is not my auction, and I am not bidding, but check out the beautiful peghead on this banjo!

That is nice. Banjo overall looks a bit 'thick' though. Maybe a stew-mac pot & tone ring?

My thought, too. If the price doesn’ get too high, someone should be getting a nice banjo. Only thing I’d do is install a geared 5th.

"Thick" - yes, when you have to make holes for the bodies of your planetary tuners to fit in, "thick" is the exact description.

Gee wizzz!
Even if I wanted it, I couldn't BUY it, since I do not have FIVE positive beefdacks, or whatever the HdevilLL the seller is demanding.

But, looks nice.

I wonder what it would sound like set up. It has the magic ingredients, thick wooden pot, look alike W.L. tone ring, just nice. Overall impression a bit on the chunky side, Mermaid could do with a little more elaboration but I like it, if it was U.K. based I would be tempted!

The peg head is, I think, unique. FWIW.

Novel and creative peghead. But that is about the ugliest-cut nut I have ever seen.

The inner, recessed part of the pot looks to me like it was added.

I bet this was made by a sailor on a whaling voyage, passing the time below decks...
