to me this looks like a gariepy.... but it's unmarked. Wondering if I could get some second opinions. Im looking at the headstock shape, pot looks to be aluminum, etc. thanks!

It looks like an old Stewart MacDonald kit banjo. They used to produce a neck with that peghead and the aluminum rim as well.

Definitely a Stewart-Macdonald kit banjo.

A friend used to play one of those—as I recall, the pot was really heavy.
