Can anyone help identify this? All or the parts?

The Neck and Resonator are import parts. I can't tell about the pot but from what I can see it is imported too. I don't believe there is any USA parts in the banjo.

I’m guessing Taiwan or Vietnam. Stuff like that shows up on eBay

Roy and Bill called it. These used to be on eBay all the time and still show up now and then. Heavy on decoration, light on quality control. The wood is not well seasoned and usually warps in a year or two.

Antonio Tsai, or Tony Tsai.

As nailed above, Vietnam. Looks interesting, but pretty low quality.

Bought a bunch of heavily inlaid finger boards off him 10-15 years ago. Made picture frames from them, have few still laying around, and yes, they are warped.
