Building another banjo why is it they tapper the inside wall of the resonator does it have to be tappered i can do it no problem, it would be easier with straight walls, so when you put in the lugs in, it would be easier what do you guys think
I have never read why Gibson tapered the resonator walls, but I imagine it was to give a greater gluing surface to the joint where it meets the back without having a heavy-looking rim, for aesthetics.
