These are his pics not mine. It has inlay everywhere inlay can go. Looking a the chip board case makes me think 70s but I don't know. The seller has no info at all on it. Any help is much appreciated

My feeling is that this is a personal project banjo, made using commercially available parts: metal, neck blank, resonator, etc. Just a guess.

This one screams Asian parts to me. The highly inlaid neck and reso look like they originated from suppliers on Ebay. There are two Asian companies that make these sort of items. One I know makes to order.

Looks like bolted together Asian pieces. If Johnathon did the bolting, RUN AWAY !
